Dallas’ youngest professional signing spent all of the 2016-17 school year at the U-17 Residency Program in Bradenton, Fla. and has earned seven U-17 National Team call-ups in the 2017 calendar year alone, including winning the CONCACAF U-17 Championship with a goal and an assist starting in the final three matches.
