Carroll was RBNY's second pick of the 2016 SuperDraft, drafted in the second round, 38th overall. He signed a contract with the first team, but was subsequently cut and re-signed to NYRB II - the Red Bulls' USL side. He had a successful season with NYRB II, contributing significantly the team's regular-season title and the winning of the 2016 USL Cup. He was named to the 2016 USL All-League Second Team.
The Red Bulls handed Scott Thomsen a Homegrown Contract in December 2015. The RBNY Academy graduate had a successful college career, winning the 2014 College Cup with the University of Virginia, and winning the 2014 NPSL Championship with RBNY U-23s (and current Red Bull Sean Davis). And he was part of the RBNY U-23 squad that made it to the 2015 PDL Championship game (losing to K-W United FC). Thomsen's stint as a senior Red Bull was brief: he was cut at the start of the 2016 season.
In July, he joined USL's Richmond Kickers. He scored one goal - against Orlando City B, as it happens.
Thomsen will turn 23 on December 31. Generally regarded as a left back, he is also capable of making memorable contributions from set pieces.
The pair of former Red Bulls continues Orlando City's recent fascination with ex-RBNY players. In 2016, OCSC drafted RBNY Academy graduate Antonio Matarazzo, and signed him to the B team. The Orlando City USL squad also signed Andrew Ribeiro (RBNY 2013 SuperDraft pick, now a stalwart USL player) and Marius Obekop (who was on RBNY's roster for three seasons, from 2013 to 2015).
All three former Red Bulls were released by OCSC B in November, clearly allowing the USL club to restock that part of its roster reserved for ex-RBNY players.
