HARRISON, N.J. – Red Bulls II Friday signed goalkeeper Scott Levene to a United Soccer League contract.
The 22-year-old Levene joins NYRB II after a four-year career at University of Connecticut, where he made 70 consecutive start to end his collegiate career, including 29 clean sheets, dating back to 2014.
The Stamford, Conn., native passed former UConn standout and current Philadelphia Union keeper Andre Blake for second-longest streak of consecutive starts in program history.
“We’re happy to welcome Scott to the club,” Red Bulls head coach John Wolyniec said. “He will be a great addition to our goalkeeping corps after four years at UCONN. He brings a high soccer IQ and possesses abilities that fit well with our style of play as he continues his development with us.”
Levene graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in marketing in December. He was a member of the U.S. Under-14/15 national teams.
“I’m very excited to sign my first professional contract,” Levene said. “To be able to accomplish something I’ve been dreaming of since I was 5 years old is truly amazing. So much hard work and sacrifice has gone into my journey and I’m very fortunate to start my career and continue to develop at such an incredible club.”
Levene will join the team for Saturday’s away match at ATL UTD 2.
