Few players in MLS history have taken a journey quite like Alex Muyl's. 


The New York Red Bulls' Homegrown midfielder isn't just a local, he's a lifelong NYC resident who grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and had to catch multiple different trains to commute out to training sessions as he rose through RBNY's academy system. 


The club's website sent their video team along with Muyl, who still lives in his childhood home on the LES, as he gave a glimpse into his life, from his rare soccer upbringing to his work in the community with Kick Childhood Cancer. Whether you're a Red Bulls fan or not, it's a story worth watching.
