The New York Red Bulls have selected Sean Davis as the team's captain, Head Coach Chris Armas announced today.
Coming through the Red Bulls system, Davis was part of the Red Bulls U-23 team that captured the NPSL Championship in 2014. He capped off the season as a starter in the championship match and assisted the game-winning goal. Davis also spent two seasons with the Red Bulls U-18s, starting 50 matches, which included a team-best 31 starts in his second season.
Davis made his first MLS appearance in 2015, with four starts and 14 appearances in his rookie campaign. He's gone on to log over 8,000 minutes across 124 games played in MLS action.
Across Concacaf Champions League and U.S. Open Cup play, Davis has also been a mainstay. He logged eight starts and nine appearances in Open Cup play, while also serving as team captain in 2018. He's seen action in 16 CCL matches as well, dating back to 2016 group stages.
Davis was a four-year standout at Duke University, succeeding both on and off the field. On the pitch, he was named the 2014 ACC Midfielder of the Year and placed on both the 2014 All-ACC first team and All-ACC Second team twice. Off the pitch, he was a three-time All-ACC Academic team and placed to the ACC-Academic Honor Roll three times.
