Head Coach Gonzalo Segares is calling together his first US U15 team for a camp in Chula Vista, CA, bringing in six players from the FC Dallas Academy and one player from Dallas Texans. The camp will run from March 1-8 at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center.
The six FC Dallas players – Victor Gomez, Aaron Salinas, Pranav DuBroff, Nolan Norris, Diego Hernandez, and Anthony Ramirez – all play for the FCD Academy U15s. The loan player selected from Dallas Texans, goalkeeper Elijah Berumen, is one of only two non-MLS Academy players chosen.
Victor Gomez and Aaron Salinas are the two primary goalkeepers for the FCD U15s who usually take turns starting.
Pranav DuBroff is one of the two outstanding U15 center backs FCD has.
Nolan Norris is the U15s’ superlative left back that I am quite enamored of as a player. He’s scored 2 goals in 10 games.
Diego Hernandez is a terrific midfielder with a knack for scoring with 5 goals in 12 games this year.
Anthony Ramirez, most often used as a striker or wing, is a terrific attacking talent who is arguably the best ball handler in the 15s. He has 5 goals in 12 games.
