FC Dallas U15s Boys for Dallas Cup 2021

It’s time now for post three in our short series on the rosters for the FC Dallas Academy teams in the Dallas Cup. MLSNext has so little info available this is the first time I’ve even gotten rosters for the 2020-21 FCD Academy sides.

Listed here is the entire roster for Dallas Cup – and a few names to watch and why – with the U15s. I started this project with U19s. The 17s can be found here.

This team is crazy talented too. The U15s – 2006s – are almost as deep as the 2005s. Again I’ll try and stick to the top players.

Who’s Who

All five of these players have moved up to the morning sessions and train with the U17s daily.

Matthew Corcoran – You will probably have heard of this name by now. This is the guy. He’s a holding mid who usually plays up with the U17s… It’s interesting to see him listed as a U15 again for the Dallas Cup. Corcoran played with North Texas SC on Saturday at San Antonio FC so he might not be with the U15s anyway. I will not be shocked to see him sign a Homegrown deal later this year.

Toro – AKA Gabriel Brandon. A dominant force at center back. Terrific leader, quality athlete, exceptional player. I wish he were a touch taller but he did just turn 15 on March 1st. He’s on the right in this picture with Corcoran.

Julian Eyestone – Goalkeeper. Still 14 and yes, he’s 6’5.” Seriously. He’s also quite athletic for his height, there’s a video floating around of him easily dunking a basketball. He’s already trained with North Texas and made his FCD U17 debut this weekend.

Henry Canizalez – Left back. The next in the FCD Academy production line of outstanding outside backs. He’s not a converted attacker like many but is still highly regarded with plenty of game getting forward.

Alejandro Urzua – Central mid. It wouldn’t be FCD without a fantastic linking or creative mid. Just another spectacular central player for the club in a long line of many. Ho-hum. πŸ™‚ We need to talk about that no. 9 jersey though.
