New York Red Bulls sporting director Andy Roxburgh has made it clear that he wants to change the Red Bulls’ reputation as a team that doesn’t focus on developing young local talent, and on Tuesday the Red Bulls took a major step toward trying to change that reputation.

The Red Bulls have signed 17-year-old academy products Santiago Castano and Armando Moreno to Homegrown Player contracts. Castano, a goalkeeper, and Moreno, a forward, have been added to the Red Bulls senior roster.

Castano, pictured above, is a former member of the U.S. Under-17 National Team residency program, and has been part of the U.S. Under-18 national team set-up. Moreno is also a U.S. Under-18 national team player, who impressed in recent appearances with the national team.
