    He’s only 19, but the versatile fullback played his way onto the roster by starting every game this season for German Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach.

    Scally, a Long Island native, didn’t log a minute for the U.S. during World Cup qualifying (though he was called in for one pair of games), acquitted himself well in his Bundesliga debut against Bayern Munich and enjoyed a solid maiden season as a pro in 2021-22 despite his tender age. He’s close friends with Gio Reyna; the pair played together in academy of 2021 MLS champ New York City FC before moving to Germany to begin their professional careers.
