The recently-relocated Portland Timbers U23s have announced the hiring of Corban University Head Men's Soccer Coach Aaron Lewis as their new Head Coach for the upcoming season.
Lewis was the first NAIA player drafted in to MLS when he was selected by Dallas with the 35th Pick in the 1999. He is no stranger to the U23s program, as he had an administrative role with the club from 2010-2013. He has been the head coach at Corban since 2013, amassing a 65-14-4 record, including 2 regular season Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC) Championships and 3 CCC Tournament Championships, while making the NAIA National Tournament four times. He was also the Head Coach with Vancouver Victory of the Evergreen Premier League for 2015-2016, winning the league championship last season.
Anthony Macchione made the most of spot minutes in a 4-0 win over Buffalo, by scoring Akron’s fourth goal of the match, while Collin Partee of Utah Valley picked up a win before earning a well deserved day off against San Jose State.
