Erick Sanchez is ahead of his time - by three years, to be exact.
The talented 14-year-old striker plays with the boys U18 Houston Dynamo team, mostly, because he can.

Their Residency program is the closest thing to a Canadian version of ussoccer's Bradenton. 13 resident players are on the U17 and U20 Canadian National Team currently.

U13 DIV Dallas Cup

The U13 Division. The most bang for your buck, this will be the most competitive and entertaining division. Each brackets are stocked with established club academy teams from around the world.

Last year's Southampton U13 team was the class of the division and eventually losing to FC Barcelona from California. I expect the same level of quality from Southampton this year.

Nationally, This division will be hosting 4 of the top 5 U13 club teams according to National Soccer Rankings.
PSC Chelsea
Arsenal FC
Dallas Texans
West Coast FC

Locally, the 96 Classic league teams has been one of the most competitive divisions in Dallas. Spearheaded by Emerson Hyndman's DTR 96
