Video: Timbers Goalkeeper Jake Gleeson Saves The Day

About a month ago, Jake Gleeson was the Portland Timbers' third-string goalkeeper. A pair of injuries forced the 20-year-old into action, though, and the Timbers appear to be the better for it. After nearly blowing a 3-0 lead in front of their home crowd, Gleeson saved the day with a pair of impressive saves as FC Dallas looked for the equalizer.

It's far too early to say just how good Gleeson may end up being, but if games like this are any indication, he's got a bright future ahead of him.
