Bryan Leyva (born February 8, 1992 in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico) is a Mexican footballer. He currently plays as an attacking midfielder for Dallas City FC (DCFC) of the National Premier Soccer League.

Youth Career[edit]

Leyva joined the FC Dallas Development Academy in June 2008 as a member of the U-16 team. He helped lead the team to a second place finish in that year’s MLS/SUM U-17 Cup.[1] The midfielder also had training stints with Lille OSC in France and Racing Santander in Spain.[2]

Club Career[edit]

In 2009, FC Dallas General Manager Michael Hitchcock announced that Leyva had been signed to its professional team. The signing made Leyva the first homegrown player in FC Dallas history. Over the next few years, he did not receive much playing time and was released by Dallas on November 7, 2012.[3] After a stint in Mexico, he returned to Dallas to join lower league side, DCFC.
