Leyva is the first Homegrown player signed by Dallas to a professional contract, having joined Dallas’ youth development system back in June 2008. He was eventually signed to a professional contract in 2009, and made his MLS debut in a loss to the LA Galaxy in 2010. But Saturday he finally got his nod in Schellas’ starting lineup.
Leyva started in place of Fabian Castillo, who was injured, and instantly had an effect on the game: as Carlos Rodriguez’s long cross skipped past Rodney Wallace, Leyva took a first touch shot on goal that was pushed away by Perkins, only to allow Blas Pérez to mop it up for his first goal in a Hoops jersey. It was a wonderful early goal and though Leyva won’t be credited on the scoresheet with an assist, it is clear to anyone who sees that highlight that Leyva created the goal.

defender, FC Dallas
Why is he Justin’s Soccer Valentine? He is an up and coming defender for FCD, and every time he gets minutes on the field he goes out there and plays his heart out. I feel like he’s going to become one of our better players in the near future and I’m excited to see where he goes. In addition, he’s adorable as hell.
What would their Soccer Valentine date be? I’m a sucker for movie dates (mostly because I have no money) so we’d probably go see a fun movie together — nothing too serious — then we could drive around downtown Dallas and just hit the town, trying to get to know each other. Nothing too complex though as I would rather just get to know someone instead of having an intricate schedule of events planned out.
