Oscar Pareja leads the FC Dallas Development Academy Program, and he leads it well. Pareja has seen several of his players called into almost every U.S. Youth National Team age group, from the Under-17 to the Under-20 Men’s National Team. Last week, Pareja got his own U.S. National Team call-up, with the former Colombia international and U.S. U-17 Men’s National team assistant coach traveling to California as assistant coach for a domestic U.S. U-15 Boys’ National Team camp. Pareja took some time to speak with ussoccer.com about his experience with the U-15 BNT and the ties between the Youth National Teams and Development Academy clubs.
