[MLS] The Chicago Fire added its second homegrown player, signing Kellen Gulley, a 17-year-old forward from ... Mississippi. He played for the Chicago Fire Juniors Mississippi -- one of the MLS club's youth programs that now span five states.

Gulley scored four goals for the U.S. U-17 national team in 2009 and 2010 but he didn't participate in qualifying or the finals of the 2011 Under-17 World Cup.

He has spent time with Chicago-based Fire amateur and youth teams, m ost recently starring at the 2011 Generation adidas Cup.

The Fire's first homegrown signing was Victor Pineda in 2010.

    Is Pineda even playing yet? Is he still making the minimum of $40,000 a year? Will it be the same with this player? It seems to me t,hat these kids get signed just to justify or market their Academy status. I hope I am wrong. Only time will tell but I haven't seen anything from Victor.
