PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Goalkeeper Derrick Tellez signed his historic contract with the Portland Timbers on Friday before showing off his considerable skills in practice and making his best game face for a team photo.

A player of few words, Derrick shyly answered "yes" when asked if he was excited about the deal.

He is just 5 years old, after all.
