Chattanooga Red Wolves SC Inks Alexi Jaimes to USL League One Team
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Chattanooga Red Wolves SC has signed forward Alexi "Alex" Jaimes to its USL League One team, pending league and federation approval.
Jaimes is now the first player in club history to sign a professional deal with Chattanooga Red Wolves SC from the club's USL League Two Park City affiliate.
According to Chattanooga Red Wolves SC President and General Manager Sean McDaniel, signing Jaimes represents the importance of a true "path2pro" avenue for young, hungry players.
"Adding Alex's pace and athleticism to the first team is something we've been looking for," said McDaniel. "He's a great asset, and we're glad to call him up from our Park City squad as we strengthen our roster."
Originally from Anaheim, California, Jaimes played his collegiate career at Salt Lake Community College and led his team to an undefeated 2016 season in the South Western Athletic Conference (SWAC), earning him a First-Team All-Region honor.
"I am extremely grateful for this opportunity that I have been given. I want to thank everyone who has helped me through my journey so far," said Jaimes. "Coach Hankinson has put together an incredible squad, and I'm super excited for this season."
According to Chattanooga Red Wolves SC Head Coach and Technical Director Tim Hankinson, Jaimes adds pace and raw talent to the roster.
"Alex came into camp with a lot of passion and energy," said Hankinson. "He has the necessary tools to take his career to the next level, and we're glad he's a part of the squad. He's going to make a quality impact to the team."
