Francisco Paúl Uscanga Gutiérrez (born March 25, 1991) is a Mexican football striker currently playing for Atlante F.C. in the Ascenso MX.

Uscanga began his young career with the Tiburones Rojos de Boca del Rio, scoring 12 goals in 33 games. He moved up to Club León in 2008, but never found the back of the net during 4 games. He later signed with Potros Chetumal, the filial team to Atlante F.C.. He impressed Atlante's coach José Guadalupe Cruz, and called him up to the first team on January 24, 2009 during a 2-0 loss to Monarcas Morelia. Uscanga played only 1 minute, plus injury time in this game. He later logged 22 minutes against CF Atlas in another loss, this time 1-0.

His older brother, Oscar Uscanga, also plays for Atlante and like Francisco, he is a striker.
