Timbers defender Chris Duvall talks about his circuitous path to Portland on Breaking Lines

At the end of the 2019 season, Chris Duvall was somewhere he’d never been before: the USL. Having been released by the Houston Dynamo two months before, the former New York Red Bull and Montreal Impact defender had to undergo a professional regroup with the Oklahoma City Energy, where he finished his sixth professional season.

Now, Duvall is back in Major League Soccer, signed to the Portland Timbers’ first team, and joining Breaking Lines to talk about his 2019 offseason, his path of Wake Forest to the pros, and the feeling of being in green and gold for a Providence Park opener.
