Chattanooga Football Club announces the signing of 5-year starter Lenny Lopez from Iona University, pending League and USSF approval.
Lopez, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Jamaica, is a striker from Rosedale, New York. He appeared in 77 matches in his career and started in 54 of them. As a senior, he finished with a team-high five goals and ten points. The five goals were second in the MAAC.
Lopez says he could not be more excited to sign with Chattanooga FC.
"It’s means a lot to be a part of this historic club," said Lopez. "With this being the first club to give me a chance to make my dream come true which is to play professional soccer it will forever have a special place in my heart. I can’t wait to play in front of the fans and make a positive impact on and off the the field."
Lopez said he is ready to live the CFC mission because he believes professional athletes can have such an impact within the community.
"It is very important to me to get to know people within the community and to build new relationships with people here in Chattanooga. I am very excited to do so."
