Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: The Curious Case of Victor Ulloa

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

The Homegrown product has played nine minutes in his time with the first team.

Time for another name on the year-end roster evaluations for FC Dallas. We're going with the Roman theme of thumbs up or thumbs down for this series.

Today's subject, is Homegrown midfielder Victor Ulloa.

Ulloa was one of the very first Homegrown players signed by FC Dallas back in 2010. There have been some growing pains going from the academy team to the first team for the Wyile, Texas native too.

In three years, Ulloa has seen more time with the reserve team than the first team. In fact, Ulloa has only played nine total minutes with the first team, a throw away game late in 2011. That same year, Ulloa the FC Dallas Reserves in minutes played (900) by playing every minute of every match. He ended the season with two assists for the 6-4-0 FC Dallas Reserves.

Ulloa once again led the FC Dallas Reserves in minutes played (775). He had one assist for the 5-3-2 FC Dallas Reserves.

But in 2012 and 2013, Ulloa continued to not see the field for the FC Dallas first team. His contract is expiring and most wonder what it means for the Homegrown product. More than likely he will join the likes of Bryan Levya and Ruben Luna as failed academy products with the FC Dallas first team.

But we give the option to you, thumbs up to keep him, or thumbs down to let him go, likely to a lower division?
