In case you haven't been following New York Red Bulls II, let me tell you that they have quite a few decent players. One of these players is former Red Bulls Academy and Seton Hall midfielder/defender Konrad Plewa. After scoring in a 2-0 win over Louisville on June 20th, he added a brace last weekend in a 4-1 win over St. Louis FC.
For his effort against St. Louis he was named to the USL Team of the Week.

His volley was included in USL's "Goals of the Week" highlight video.
That same goal was nominated for Goal of the Month.

After a shaky start to the season, New York Red Bull II have found themselves holding on tight to a USL playoff spot at the midway point of the season. The team has seen a number of players rotating in and out depending on need from the MLS side, and also based on performance. The early part of the season was dominated by MLS bench players like Anatole Abang, the team’s best goal scorer at the time, and Marius Obekop. Now players like Dan Metzger, Chris Tsonis and Konrad Plewa have stated their case, giving the coaching staff an invaluable data to sink their teeth into during the congested months ahead.
