Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a Homegrown Player on January 6, 2020.

A three-time Dynamo Academy Player of the Year, Palomino is a diminutive playmaker who will hope to continue to develop under the tutelage of Tab Ramos after getting his first taste of MLS in 2020.

INTERNATIONAL: The midfielder began his youth national team career in 2014 when he was named to the U.S. U-14 Boys National Team. Since then, the Houston native has been a regular in the pool selected for the U-15, U-16, U-18 and U-19 U.S. squads. Palomino was selected by now Dynamo head coach Tab Ramos to the U.S. U-18 Men’s National Team in 2018 and claimed the championship in the International Youth Tournament of Vaclav Jezek after beating Japan 4-2 in a penalty kick shootout. Palomino was a regular in the Youth National Team setup for the remainder of 2018 and was most recently named to the U-20 National Team in Sept. 2019 when he joined Ramos for two friendlies in Slovenia.
