Red Bulls Sign New Jersey Native Dilly Duka

Andrew Horun is a Phillipsburg High School senior who earned National Honor Society recognition in 2016 and participated on the school’s wrestling team. In addition to wrestling, Andrew “Drew” Horun is a passionate fan of pro sports and counts the New York Red Bulls as his favorite Major League Soccer (MLS) team.

Through 23 games in the 2017 season, the Red Bulls sat fourth in the MLS Eastern Conference with a record of 11–9–2. To improve its standing and bolster its midfield depth, the team signed veteran Dilly Duka, a New Jersey native who spent last season playing for Columbus Crew SC.

Duka was on the team’s roster this season but didn’t appear in any games. The 27-year-old was drafted into the MLS by Columbus in 2010 following a successful career with Rutgers University, where he was named to the Big East Conference Second Team in 2008.

Throughout his seven-year MLS career, Duka has scored 12 goals and added 14 assists through 138 regular season games. He also has one goal in four playoff appearances. Additionally, Duka represented the United States at the 2009 U20 World Cup and played one game for the U23 national team in 2012.
