FC Dallas Academy U16s for 2023 Dallas Cup

New this year is the FC Dallas U16 Academy team. The newness of this side meant FCD needed to add quite a few players at this level as you will see. But it also means more minutes for everyone.

I really pleased FCD added this team.

FC Dallas Academy U17s

Record: 13-1-3

Coach: Scott James

Bracket B: DKSC 07 ECNL, Futbol Consultants Edson Soto U16, Nevada Rush 2007 Select


Who to Watch

Caleb Swann – 2007. For my money the best 2007 in DFW. He was formally a 10 and is now an 8 (free-8) but he plays defense with tenacity and it’s a long-term better fit. Strong Paxton Pomykal vibes here. Joined FCD from Solar this season. He’s often played up with FCD U17s.

Michael Cortellessa – 2007. Can left or right back, or play anywhere on the field really. I joke he’s Ryan Hollinghead 2.0 but the kid is that good. A complete player. US U16. Like Swann, often plays with U17s.

Bryce Outman – 2007. Small but fierce. Bags of skill, dynamic. Can get pushed around but fights through a lot of it. US U16.

Ian Charles – Puerto Rico U17. He’s also played up with FCD U17s. New to FCD this season.

Kaka Scabin – 2007. CB. His move to FCD caught some people by surprise. He’s played in at least one North Texas Sc scrimmage although I think it’s a little too soon to see him there much.

U16 FC Dallas Academy Roster

The U16s mostly wear 1-29 but a few later editions got higher numbers. They are all 2007s so I took that column off this chart.
