Austin has potential...……………….. Dallas had youth soccer excellence before FCD's academy even existed. FCD is simply building and building and building on that culture to great effect. What's happening now in Dallas was Lamar Hunt's vision from a looooooooooooong time ago. Austin has no such youth soccer culture of excellence on which to build. There's been a player or two come out of Austin recently. Particularly Lonestar. That's where Kekuta Manneh rose to prominence after moving to the states. McKinze Gaines (now at Darmstadt in Germany) came out of Austin. Austin has ALL of the ingredients. Young, diverse, rapidly growing city of folks with expendable income. But it sorta has to built from the ground up.
