As a former student athlete at Phillipsburg High School in New Jersey, Andrew (Drew) Horun was inducted into the National Honor Society and competed on the school’s wrestling team. He has also contributed to his local community by coaching youth in wrestling and soccer. In his free time, Andrew Horun supports the New York Red Bulls soccer team.
Recently, the New York Red Bulls signed Denis Hamlett as sporting director. Hamlett will oversee the team’s sporting operations, including player acquisitions and the operations budget. He will also be involved in the team’s player development model, which includes the youth-oriented Red Bulls Academy, the New York Red Bulls II (a reserve team), and the amateur-league Under-23 team.
A native of Costa Rica, Hamlett played 31 games with the Colorado Rapids during his career. He comes to this new role with nearly two decades of coaching experience, previously serving as head coach of the Chicago Fire for two seasons. Hamlett spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons as top assistant to Jesse Marsch, the Red Bulls head coach.
A Phillipsburg High School graduate who competed on the wrestling team, Andrew Horun resides in New Jersey. His sports activities include coaching wrestling and soccer, and he stays in shape through workouts at MADE Strength & Conditioning. Also a culinary enthusiast, Andrew Horun grew up eating a variety of traditional Eastern European foods, including pierogis and halushki and has recently become a fan of Thai cuisine.
One of the most complex Thai flavor profiles is contained within Tom Yum soup, which can be served with prawns or chicken and features an unusual blend of ingredients and spices. The traditional recipe calls for chicken broth to be combined with a number of fresh ingredients not meant to be eaten.
These include galangal, ginger, kaffir lime leaves, and lemongrass. Chili peppers or nam prik pao (roasted chili paste) can be added to taste. In addition, many cooks add mushrooms and a dash of nam pla, a common Thai fish sauce.
The soup can be either clear or employ a touch of canned evaporated milk, to create a richer taste. With the addition of fresh vegetables such as tomatoes and onions, the soup is created through a straightforward process of bringing to a boil and simmering until just the right taste is achieved.
