Ricky Dorrego, Ricky Abrego and Jesus Gonzalez of the Portland Timbers U-23 team held a skills clinic for students attending Catholic Charities' El Programa Hispano School Uniting Neighborhoods afterschool program last week.
Timbers players taught students foot skill techniques, ran drills, and signed autographs before the program's student soccer teams from Hall and East Gresham Elementary faced off in a match.
More than 40 children attended.
