Career[edit]

Youth and College[edit]

Pulido grew up in Miami, Florida, attended American High School, winning a high school championship in 1999, and played college soccer at Florida International University.

Professional[edit]

Pulido was drafted in the sixth round (55th overall) of the 2004 MLS SuperDraft by the Colorado Rapids,[1] but was not offered a contract by the team. Instead, Pulido played with Colorado's development team, Boulder Rapids Reserve, in the USL Premier Development League, and featured for Boulder in the 2004 PDL Championship game.[2]

His rights were traded to FC Dallas in June 2005 for a fourth-round pick in the 2006 MLS Supplemental Draft.[3] After a spell with FC Dallas's reserve side in 2005,[4] Pulido was signed by USL First Division side Miami FC prior to their inaugural season in 2006.[5] He was Miami's club captain in 2008 and stayed with the club until 2009.
