Heh-heh! Here is the translation form google's translation service:

Die Fuggerstädter verstärken sich mit Calvin Brock. Der 23 jährige US Amerikaner ist 1,96 m groß und wiegt 91 kg. Der athletische Spieler kann auf den Positionen Shooting Guard und Small Forward spielen. Calvin kommt vom Illinois College, wo er vier erfolgreiche Jahre spielte. Mit seinem Team erreichte er in der extrem starken Big Ten Liga in den Jahren 2007 und 2009 das Halbfinale, 2008 stießen die Fighting Illini sogar bis ins Finale vor. Wie sein Lieblingsspieler Michael Jordan gibt es für Calvin aber nicht nur die orange Kugel. Er entwickelte sich in den letzten Jahren auch zu einem exzellenten Baseballspieler. Jedoch ist Sport nicht alles. Das weiß auch der smarte Amerikaner. Er erhielt im Mai seinen Bachelor Abschluss in Sportmanagement und arbeitet derzeit sogar an einem zweiten Abschluss im Gesundheitswesen. Frank wird bei Weißenhorn in der kommenden Saison eine der beiden Ausländerpositionen belegen.
