5'11" 190. Was he a work out freak in 1982? He sure added plenty of mass in the years after that.

Alzner was what, 6'2 205? Told me he wanted to lose weight and get down to 195.

I think in the grand scheme of discussing prospects developement, they had both filled out just fine. Brute strength wasnt Alzner's game, regardless.
