June 26, 2009 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Seattle Sounders FC News Release

RENTON, WASH. - The Seattle Sounders FC has signed goalkeeper Terry Boss, the team announced today.

Boss, 27, earned USL-2 Goalkeeper of the Year honors in 2008 while playing for the Charlotte Eagles. He joined the New York Red Bulls on September 15, 2008, and remained with the MLS club until being waived May 27.

A native of Philomath, Oregon, Boss has been training with Sounders FC since early June. He has represented the Puerto Rico National Team three times, all in 2008.

"I was aware of Boss while he was playing in USL-2 with the Charlotte Eagles," said Coach Sigi Schmid. "He's got good size, good range, and he works very hard. He had an injury setback last year, but he's looked very sharp in his training with us and we're happy to have him. "

Boss led USL-2 in wins (11) and shutouts (9) in 2008, helping Charlotte reach the league championship game. After signing with New York he played in three reserve team games before sustaining a torn posterior cruciate ligament.
