FC DALLAS ALAMO AREA
FRISCO - Scott Dymond, FC Dallas' College Director and U-19 Premier head coach, lost a four-year battle with esophageal cancer on Thursday night.
Hired in June 2010 to create a pathway to college for FC Dallas Youth players, Dymond has helped hundreds of young players achieve their college dreams, both on and off the field. Dymond was also instrumental in the club's Chase Signing Night - an annual celebration of high school seniors signing a National Letters of Intent to play collegiate soccer.
As a coach of the U-18 and U-19 Premier teams over the last eight years, his teams have won numerous tournaments, including two Dallas Cup titles, and made multiple appearances at the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships. He was named North Texas Soccer's Coach of the Year in 2015.
Dymond was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1969. He is survived by his wife, Mary, and three children, Miranda, a junior at the University of North Texas, Allyson, a freshman at the University of Houston and John, a freshman at Prosper High School.
The Dymond family has set up a GoFundMe page here.
As part of our affiliation with MLS club FC Dallas, one of our player, Santi Rosales (2008), has been invited and has accepted to join the FC Dallas Academy in Dallas! We all wish Santi and his family the best of luck in this new adventure and also want to thank coach Javier Martinez for the excellent work he did developing this young man, proving once again that FC Dallas Alamo Area is the top developing soccer club in the San Antonio area.
Five other FC Dallas Alamo Area have also been identified as some of the best players in the San Antonio area and will join the local San Antonio FC's Development Academy: Emilio Vega, Dalziel Ozuna, Brian Guevara, Landon Ortega and Jacob Lopez. We wish those young men the best in their budding career.
