Ryan Jeffrey Brown Kenny (born September 11, 1987) is an American former professional soccer player.

Early life and education[edit]

Kenny was born September 11, 1987, in Livermore, California.[1] He played high school soccer at Buchanan High School in Clovis, California.[1]

Kenny attended the University of California, Santa Barbara and was a student-athlete on the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos men's soccer team.[2] He battled to serve as backup to incumbent UCSB starter Kyle Reynish, but ultimately redshirtted and made no appearances.[3][4][5]

Kenny transferred to California State University, Sacramento after his first season and it was announced that Kenny would join the Sacramento State Hornets men's soccer team in March 2006.[6] He played for the Hornets for four seasons and on his departure ranked third all-time in career saves (160) and goals against average (1.49).[7]

Playing career[edit]

During his college years, Kenny also played several seasons for Fresno Fuego of the USL Premier Development League, leading them to a league title and a National Semi-Final appearance to be named Co-Defensive player of the year.[8][9]

After graduating from Sacramento State, Kenny spent 2010 training with Major League Soccer side Real Salt Lake.[10]

In February 2011, Kenny signed his first professional contract with the Rochester Rhinos in the USL Pro.[11] Former UCSB teammates Tyler Rosenlund and Alfonso Motagalvan were teammates.[12] He made his professional debut on May 10, 2011, in a game against the Harrisburg City Islanders, which was his only USL Pro appearance for the club.[13][14] He made one further appearance for the Rhinos, a 2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup game on June 14, 2011, against Phoenix SC, which was his last professional appearance.[15][16]

In the offseason, Kenny suffered injuries to both shoulders and was not able to compete again.[17]
