All-Time Academy Pros

This is a list of every FC Dallas Academy player that we know of that has played for a professional or semi-professional soccer team indoors or outdoors.

I have chosen not to include amateur players at North Texas SC or any other club. This list is pro contracted and paid players only.

The list is organized by birth year – youngest to oldest – and I have listed each team they played for that I can find.

Update: Names in red were found/suggested by Ismael Belkoura, Jan 4, 2021. Names in blue suggested by @NoHammiesJozy, Jan 4.

And that’s it. As far as I know there were no 1990 or older players in the Academy. These 1991s and 1992s were in the very first U18 team when it was announced.

Bryan Leyva was the first Homegrown signing follow shortly by Victor Ulloa, Moises Hernandez, and Ruben Luna.
