NYRB II is off to an uneven start in USL 2017: a 3-3 draw on the road in Pittsburgh, followed by a 1-0 home win over Richmond Kickers and a 1-0 home loss to Harrisburg City Islanders. The team is still working its way into the new season, with several new recruits in key positions, and the usual necessity to make room in the lineup for first-teamers requiring time on the field to stay sharp or find form.

Still, even in the early stages of the season, one or two players on the II team have found opportunity to boost their profile and reputation. Among those showing signs of potential for success this season: Zeiko Lewis.

Picked 17th overall in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft by New York Red Bulls, Lewis is still best known for his reaction to being considered merely one of the top 20 prospects in this year’s draft. But he is quickly establishing his bona fides on the field in USL. He scored on his debut for NYRB II against Richmond, and he was arguably the team’s greatest attacking threat against Harrisburg.

As the year progresses, it now seems likely we’ll hear increasingly less about Lewis’ (amazing) Draft Day speech and more about what his play on the field is saying about him.

For now, enjoy a few Matthew Stith shots of Lewis in action against Harrisburg.
