FRISCO - If sports is your thing, then pay close attention. You're about to meet one of the top young talents in the game of soccer: Wylie's very own Victor Ulloa, now playing for your hometown team FC Dallas.

Ulloa has been with the team since high school after signing with the FC Dallas Academy program. And that hard work has certainly paid off. He's now in the MLS playing for the team he grew up watching.

"Sometimes I still can't believe that I play the sport I love, and I get paid to do it," Ulloa said.

But what does the Dallas area native do when he's not running up and down the pitch?  He and his teammates try to relax by playing other sports or going to support their fellow Dallas teams.

"I love Dallas, so yeah, I support all the Dallas teams: the Dallas Cowboys, the Dallas Mavericks. I've been to a couple Mavs games this year, and every time I've been there they've won. So, I might need to start going a little more," Ulloa joked.

Right now, FC Dallas is in the middle of their season, and you've still got plenty of time to catch a game or two at Toyota Stadium. The regular season runs March through October.
