The Akron, Ohio native spent the past two seasons with Eastern Conference side Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, where he was an integral part of strong defensive squads that led the Hounds to back-to-back postseason appearances. In 2022, the defender appeared in a career-high 35 matches across all competitions, leading his squad in successful tackles and ranking second in intercepted passes. Throughout the season, he earned three USL Championship Team of the Week selections and was a key member of a defensive unit that recorded 11 clean sheets. In 2021, he was part of a back line that allowed the third-fewest shots faced in the entire league, and the third-fewest goals against.
Prior to Riverhounds SC, Wiedt played two seasons with Loudoun United FC. After tallying seven appearances in his 2019 pro debut season, the defender was among the club’s top contributors during the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign. He finished the season leading the Virginia club in appearances (13), minutes (1,040), and interceptions (24).
Wiedt played four seasons at the collegiate level at the University of Akron and University of Pittsburgh. After a redshirt freshman season at Akron, he played in 32 matches for the Zips from 2015 to 2017, logging over 1,700 minutes. His Junior season squad advanced to the semifinals of the 2017 NCAA D1 College Cup, where they fell to eventual champion Stanford. He played his senior season at the University of Pittsburgh, helping the Panthers make a run to the ACC Tournament quarterfinals.
