Preseason training camp officially kicked off for the Portland Timbers today, and what better way to mark the occasion than with a little player news?

According to a tweet from Richard Farley, the team’s internal reporter and content producer, the Timbers have signed academy product and University of Washington standout Blake Bodily to a Homegrown player contract:

Bodily, a 22-year-old midfielder/attacker originally from Eagle, Idaho, attended Tigard High School and joined the Timbers academy in 2014. He spent some time with Timbers 2, making 33 appearances for the USL side from 2015–2017.
