Luis Moreno signs professional contract with El Paso Locomotive


El Paso Locomotive announced earlier today that former Dynamo Academy midfielder, Luis Moreno, will join the Club for the 2023 season. 

“Luis is a hard-working and passionate young man, and he has been a pleasure to mentor since I have arrived here in Houston,” Dynamo Academy general manager, Tony Vigil said. “As we continue to refine our professional pathway here at the club, Luis is a fine example of how we will continue to develop young professional players that are able to play at different professional tiers in this country. I am happy for Luis, his family and wish him the best in this next chapter of his journey.”

Moreno is the youngest player to sign a professional contract for the Locomotive and departs the Dynamo Academy after representing the program from the U-12 level. The Houston native joined the Dynamo Academy in 2018 and most recently competed at the U-17 level.

The 16-year-old also represented the academy with the U.S. Boy’s National Team in the U-17 category in 2022 and 2021.
