MLSSoccer.com's popular 24 under 24 feature has returned for another year. The first batch of rankings were released today and FC Dallas' Fabian Castillo came in at No. 22. Click to read the full write up, but here's  a taste of the analysis:

Castillo has gone from an FC Dallas hopeful last year to an established talent in MLS in 2012, as his blistering pace continues to be too much to handle for most opponents. His ability to turn that speed into goals has improved this year (three goals in August), although his finishing still needs work. With the return of influential playmaker David Ferreira, Castillo could be set to take another step forward.

FC Dallas held a full training session on Wednesday evening at Toyota of Lewisville Railroad Park. The session was hosted by the Great Lewisville Area Soccer Association (GLASA). Fans were able to watch training and meet the players afterward. An estimated crowd of 250-300 turned out for the event.

FC Dallas beat writer Daniel Robertson asked coach Schellas Hyndman about getting out into the community:

“It’s wonderful, wonderful. Anytime we can do something in the community, as I mentioned to the players, it’s an opportunity to give something back to the community. No professional [sports] organization can survive without the community supporting them. This is just one way for us to show our appreciation to be a part of the greater Lewisville soccer association which is a good soccer association. These are wonderful facilities here and this all came about because somebody had a vision that youth soccer and other sports were important to this community. We’re very very happy to be a part of that and I thought that the facilities again were very good, the field was in great shape and we were able to do a normal training session. That’s very important for us because no team is capable of giving away training days. So we were able to get a good training in and I think for us it was 100 percent a great event.”

The unknown voters behind the MLS Power Rankings kept FC Dallas at No. 13 in the Week 26 rankings after a 1-1 draw to Seattle at home on Sunday. Here's what the voters had to say:
 
A win over the Sounders sure would have been nice, but a draw at least keeps them in the hunt. No question that they'll have to get the full three points against Vancouver when the 'Caps come to town on Sept. 15, the next game for both teams. Anything less than a win, and the Western Conference playoff race is over.
