CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Chattanooga Red Wolves SC today announced the addition of TJ Bush, a goalkeeper from Herndon, Va., pending league and federation approval.

In 2022, Bush joined South Georgia Tormenta FC after a stint with the Charlotte Independence. Bush recorded 45 saves with an 80.4% save percentage and six clean sheets during his first season in Statesboro. He also conceded zero penalty goals and registered one penalty saved in 2022. Bush was a part of the championship team that won the 2022 USL League One title with a 2-1 victory against Chattanooga.

Bush ended the 2023 season having played 1,271 minutes for South Georgia, starting 14 times out of 15 appearances. Bush recorded 25 saves, nine catches, ten punches and 19 clearances. 

During his collegiate career at James Madison University, Bush appeared in 66 games over three seasons with 6,088 minutes played, 191 saves and a 78.3% save percentage. During his senior year, TJ was third in the country in save percentage (88.2%) and is the career shutout program record holder with 30. At the end of his collegiate career, Bush was drafted 80th overall in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft by Seattle Sounders FC. 

"I am very excited to be joining Chattanooga Red Wolves SC for the 2024 season," Bush said. "I've heard many great things about the club, fans and community. I'm looking forward to playing in front of the Red Wolves fans. I can't wait for the season to start, see you all soon at CHI Memorial Stadium!"

"We took a real deep dive into goalkeepers in the market from college, the USL and abroad, and knew we needed to sign proven quality but also a player with a lot of potential who can grow and develop in our environment," Chattanooga Head Coach Scott Mackenzie said. "TJ fits the bill. He is a winner, he is a top shot stopper, good with the ball at his feet and is going to be a major addition to the team. Very excited to get him onboard for 2024."
