The Houston Dynamo have signed former Development Academy U-17/18 player Francisco Navas Cobo to a professional contract. Navas Cobo, who moved to the Dynamo Academy from Colombia in the fall of 2009, became the 11th player in Major League Soccer history to move from an Academy program to the first team. While with the Dynamo Academy, Navas Cobo helped the team into the top position in the Texas Division of the Development Academy while taking advantage of several opportunities to train with the first team under head coach Dominic Kinnear. Navas Cobo played with the first team throughout preseason, including 90 minutes against FC Dallas on Feb. 27.
