Coy Craft and Aaron Meyer will train with FC Dallas first team

Two academy players are traveling with the first team to Florida this week.

Typically when a team is in preseason they bring on trialists during their preseason trips. While FC Dallas may still do that, the club announced on Monday afternoon that they have brought a couple up and coming academy players with them to Bradenton, Florida.

FC Dallas Academy standouts Coy Craft and Aaron Meyer are set to join the first team for preseason training this week, according to head coach Oscar Pareja.

"It's the philosophy of the club to support our young players, especially our academy," said Pareja. "I think it's the FC Dallas way that has been in place already, and I want to continue to consistently be strong with it. Taking Coy and Aaron to preseason is valuable, not just for them, but for the entire club. We want to establish that connection (between our youth, academy and first team) right away."

Most recently, Craft was competing with the FC Dallas U-17 side at a Generation adidas tournament in Phoenix, Ariz. Despite being the team's youngest player, Craft currently leads the FC Dallas U-18s with 10 goals.

Meyer has three goals for the FC Dallas U-18s in 14 games and has spent time with the U.S. U-17 National Team.

Craft has been a player we've talked about before on here. Recently we mentioned him as a player that could be on the horizon for a Homegrown Player slot down the line.
