In his sophomore season with the Red Bulls, Homegrown player Alex Muyl produced yet another quality season.
This year, the Georgetown alumnus tallied three goals and four assists in 30 appearances in the MLS regular season. The 22-year-old also managed to earn 21 starts, up from 18 during his rookie season.
Similar to Tyler Adams, Muyl found himself dispersed in many different positions this year in head coach Jesse Marsch’s tactics. Regardless of where he was in the formation, Muyl’s high work rates shined through his 1945 minutes of play this MLS regular season and playoffs.
In his end-of-the-year interviews, Marsch mentioned the hard work of Homegrowns Muyl, Adams and Sean Davis on and off the field, including furthering their education.
“I could go down all of our young players tell them they feel a responsibility,” Marsch praised. “They commit to this all the way, so I think there’s a real sense of pride in terms of what we do here and how holistically we tell people how to get better, but we have a philosophy, we have an identity, and everybody’s truly committed to it.”
