Alan Rutkowski Makes History in Professional Debut


Red Bulls Academy goalkeeper Alan Rutkowski became the youngest to start in net in club history for Red Bulls II on Saturday, October 1 at Phoenix Rising FC.

At 15 years and 341 days old, he also became the fifth-youngest player to appear in a match in club history. Two of the players younger than him, Nathan Worth and Davi Alexandre, also made their professional debuts this season.
