The back line is here.

During last season's remarkable run from the basement to the top of the USL-1 table, a common statement was spoken with a tinge of relief every time the team gathered in the early morning hours at PDX for one of our many pain inducing travel days: "The back line is here." Not that other players absent or in attendance were less important, but the general sentiment among the staff was once the four starting defenders were present and accounted for, we could breath easier.

With this week's signing of left back Leonard Griffin, the back line is officially here for 2008. Very good news.
