In 1997, Figueroa practiced with the San Jose Clash, but was never offered a contract. On August 14, 1997, the Seattle Sounders of the A-League signed Figueroa.[1] In December 1997, Figuero signed a one-year contract with the Sounders. However, in April 1998, the Clash signed Figueros as a discovery player after the Sounders released him.[2] On November 1, 1998, the Clash waived Figueros and seven other players after a dismal season.[3] He then signed with the Kansas City Wizards. He spent two seasons in Kansas City, going on loan to MLS Pro 40 for a handful of games during both seasons. In 2001, he moved to the El Paso Patriots of the USL A-League. From 2003–2005, Figueroa played for OTW Santa Clara in the Premier Arena Soccer League. In 2005, he had a successful trial with the California Cougars of the second Major Indoor Soccer League. He was the 2005 MISL Rookie of the Year.[4] In September 2007, Figueroa tore his right anterior cruciate ligament and his right lateral meniscus in a pre-season exhibition game with the Cougars, losing the entire season. In 2008, he moved to the Baltimore Blast of the National Indoor Soccer League. In November 2009, Figueroa returned to the Cougars, now playing in the PASL.[5] In 2010, he joined Top Notch FC of the PASL.
