Timbers Re-Sign Scot Thompson

The Timbers have announced the re-signing of defender Scot Thompson on a 2-year contract.

Thompson, 23, started in 12 of 13 games played with the Timbers in 2004 after being loaned to Portland from the Los Angeles Galaxy of MLS at midseason.

"I loved every part of playing in Portland," Thompson said. "The fans are amazing, the city is perfect and Bobby (Howe) is a great coach who gives me the freedom to do what I do best. When I went back to the (Los Angeles) Galaxy last year, I always thought of returning to the Timbers."

Notes from the Tribune

A couple of quick notes from today's Tribune...

To celebrate the Timbers' 30th anniversary they will launch a series of six to eight four-day youth soccer camps, welcome back mascot Timber Jim and return most of the players from last year's team.

"Our first priority is solidifying the defense, and the second priority is finding a replacement for (forward) Alan Gordon," says General Manager Jim Taylor.

Taylor also notes that "One, but not both, of last year's two goalies, Josh Saunders or Bayard Elfvin, is likely to be back"

Timbers Draft Picks Announced

The Portland Timbers have selected forward Justin Cook from Ohio State University and goalkeeper Dan Kennedy of UC-Santa Barbara with their two picks in the 2005 USL First Division College Player Draft. Both players were present at last week's 2005 MLS Player Combine.

Cook was the 2004 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, amassing a team-high 30 points (12g, 6a) during his senior season with the Buckeyes. Cook also played four seasons for the Central Florida Kraze of USL's Premiere Development League and one season for the PDL's Columbus Stars.

Cook's former assistant coach at Ohio, Brian Johnson, was recently named as an assistant coach for the new MLS team Real Salt Lake.

Kennedy, 22, was named the Big West Conference's Goalkeeper of the Year for the second consecutive season after allowing just 13 goals in 23 matches at UCSB this past season, posting a 0.55 goals-against average while collecting 84 saves.

The Gauchos made their first three NCAA tournament appearances (2002-2004) in school history with Kennedy in goal, including a trip to the 2004 College Cup, where UCSB fell 3-2 on penalty kicks to Indiana.

A former college teammate of Portland midfielder Memo Arzate, the Yorba Linda, Calif., native played for the PDL's Orange County Blue Stars in 2003 and 2004.
