Like the FC Dallas U17s, the U15s will be heading to the 2023 Generation adidas Cup. I also just got this roster today.
FC Dallas Academy U15s
Coach: Alex Aldaz
Group 2: New York Red Bull, FC Montreal, Chelsea FC
Who to Watch
Zach Molomo – 2008. The next FC Dallas converted striker to center back. He’s been about 6 feet tall for a year now but he’s athletic and can move. Big-time prospect just now learning to play defense.
Andre Saucedo – 2008. Playmaker and game changer. Likes to check back and nip balls off. Like most 10s will need to learn a complete game but he’s got bags of skill.
Matthew Razo – 2008. Has the makings of a top-tier 6. Range, strong will, tenacity, work rate, game reading, can pass & dribble, and has the willingness to get nasty. Needs to work on game wisdom cause he can overdo it and burn himself out before the games end.
Tadesse Hart – 2008. A slashing wing who loves to take players one v one. Dangerous and puts defenses under pressure.
FC Dallas U15 Academy Roster
Nothing really shocking here. No 2009s coming up or anything. Three new players (Trialists? Guests?) without numbers on the roster.
2008s wear number 31 and up except Molomo who has a low number so he can easily go up with U16s.

My favorite thing about Hart’s game is when he’s against the ball. The kid is a DAWG – smart, tough, very hard-working. Creates a couple of dangerous TOs every game.
