CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Chattanooga Red Wolves SC announced Wednesday the signing of former Reno 1868 FC and Xolos de Tijuana goalkeeper Sebastian Mora-Mora for the 2021 USL League One season, pending league and federation approval.
The 22-year-old goalkeeper joins Chattanooga with a wealth of experience. Mora-Mora spent his youth career playing for the Real Salt Lake Academy before signing professionally with his hometown club Xolos de Tijuana of Liga MX at age 19. Most recently, Mora-Mora played for the USL Championship’s 2020 regular season champion Reno 1868 FC.
Red Wolves Head Coach Jimmy Obleda sees Mora-Mora as a great fit for the 2021 team.
“Sebastian is a great addition to the team,” Obleda said. “Not only does he have a wealth of experience for such a young age, he fits the profile of goalkeeper that we are looking for. He is very good in goal but has the skill of a field player when he is asked to play out. I’m very happy to have him here with us.”
“The Red Wolves are a high quality club with strong leadership, a winning mentality and a very capable coaching staff,” said Mora-Mora. “I believe this is the perfect team to help me do my very best work. To the fans, I'm excited to meet each of you and represent this city. I will give the very best that I have on the field.”
Mora-Mora is the 12th player signed by the Red Wolves for the 2021 season joining newcomers Josue Espana, Jose Carrera Garcia, Jimmie Villalobos, Jackson Dieterich and returners Ualefi Dos Reis, Ami Pineda, Ronaldo Pineda, Marky Hernandez, Ricky Ruiz, Jonathan Ricketts, Jason Ramos and Tim Trilk.
