As the Portland Timbers prepare for their all-important Western Conference semifinal second leg against the Seattle Sounders, the spotlight is on head coach Caleb Porter as he continues to enjoy a dream first season in charge of the Timbers.

I recently completed a lengthy profile piece on Porter for Overlap Magazine, which goes into detail about Porter’s background, and the road he took from baby born in Cascadia, to one of the most respected coaches in MLS.

You can find the original piece in the latest edition of Overlap, the digital magazine you can download for both iPads and iPhones, as well as Androids. The Overlap version includes a variety of photos from Porter’s past, and some quality artwork.

Give the story a read and let me know what you think of the closer look at Portland’s man in charge in the comments section below.
