The Red Bulls are continuing to sign their own players and ride the wave for keeping their prospects from their Academy sides, to the USL side and right into their MLS team. Sean Davis is one of those players who has been kept by Sporting Director Denis Hamlett and Head Coach Jesse Marsch.
“We are all very pleased to make this announcement,” said Sporting Director Denis Hamlett. “Sean has grown tremendously as a player and a person in his time here and earned this contract.”
The 25 year old from Holmdel, New Jersey and former Duke player has been a bright spot since he came up and was apart of that magical game scoring two goals with the baby bulls against Chelsea in the 2015 International Champions Cup at Red Bull Arena when they were the defending Premier League Champions.
Since then he has started in 39 out of 66 regular season games scoring four goals and ten assists. His first game in 2015 was in the fourth round US Open Cup as he scored the third goal against the Atlanta Silverbacks who were in the NASL.
“We’re excited to have Sean here long term,” said Head Coach Jesse Marsch. “Sean represents everything that is great about our club, an academy product that has become a major part of our team and represents us well. We know he is going to be a big part of our team moving forward.”
Sean Davis has shown he can play as an attacking and creative midfield player, as well as a defending midfielder when he is paired with fellow academy alumni Tyler Adams. He has had a good amount of chances attacking and taking set pieces.
But this has been one of the main topics for the Red Bulls as they will continue to develop their own talent and put them in situations that will help the club succeed and earning their first piece of cup silverware which will hopefully be this season.
“I’m happy to continue my career with an organization that has helped me grow into the person and player I am today,” said Davis. “This is a great opportunity to thank family, friends, teammates, coaches and fans for all their support over the years. I’d also like to thank all of the New York Red Bull employees for the hard work they do behind the scenes. I’m proud to be a part of this club.”
As of right now the Red Bulls are out in Carson California getting ready for their big match against Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Los Angeles Galaxy for this coming Saturday night, with both Sean Davis and Daniel Royer locked up for the long term the Red Bulls can take care of their task at hand.
