While the Pittsburgh Riverhounds have announced a lot of signings in the past four weeks, one position that remained limited to one player was the goalkeeping post.   That changed today, when they announced the signing of former MLS League Pool Keeper Trey Mitchell, to a one-year deal, with an option for 2018.  
Mitchell, 25, joins the Hounds after spending this past season as a MLS League Pool Goalkeeper and training with Sporting Kansas City. He has served as a League Pool Goalkeeper since 2015, including making an appearance for the Colorado Rapids in the 2016 U.S. Open Cup, as well as showings with D.C. United, Orlando City B, the Philadelphia Union and Sporting in 2015.
With the addition of Mitchell, the Hounds now have 22 players officially under contract for the 2017 season. He is the second keeper to be signed by the club this offseason, joining Keasel Broome, who was added this past November.

“Trey gives us another goalkeeper very capable of being a No. 1 option,” said head coach Dave Brandt. “He’s a good goalkeeper that is athletic, strong in the box, and a good shot stopper, who also really has a good bit of high-level experience.”

A native of Alta Loma, California, Mitchell played collegiately at Citrus College for two years before transferring to Division II side Cal State Dominguez Hills. With Citrus, Mitchell racked up 81 saves and a 2.09 goals-against average. His time with Cal State was even more successful, as he made 20 appearances, notching 71 saves for a .085 GAA.
Outside of his time with the Toros from 2013-14, Mitchell had stints with FC Hasental of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL), the Chivas Under-23’s and the Ventura County Fusion of the Premier Development League (PDL). He also has extended his experience into the coaching realm, serving on the staffs of Hollywood FC and Pepperdine University.
Mitchell’s professional career kicked off in 2015, when he signed with the LA Galaxy prior to becoming a League Pool Goalkeeper.
