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 of professionally 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.

Thanks to Ismael Belkoura and @NoHammiesJozy who both made large contributions to this list.

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.

Victor Ulloa 28, Moises Hernandez 29, and Ruben Luna 34 sign with FC Dallas in 2010. (FCD Communications)
