Hugo Alcaraz-Cuellar (born April 6, 1977 in Guadalajara, Jalisco) is a Mexican footballer who most recently played for the Seattle Sounders of the USL First Division.

Alcaraz-Cuellar initially began playing soccer with the San Diego Flash in 2001. In his rookie season in professional soccer, he began to showcase his talents as an attacking midfielder where he enjoyed a rather successful campaign by tallying in six goals. Unfortunately San Diego would fold the following season, which would result in Alcaraz-Cuellar to sign with the Portland Timber. It was in Portland where he broaden his positison of a attacking midfielder to that of a playmaker. During his tenure with Portland, he established himself as the Timbers' all-time leader in assists, with 44. Including being ranked second in games played, and as well as third in points for the club. He assisted the club by claiming their first USL First Division Commissioner's Cup; he was awarded the Assist Leader Statistical award twice in his career, becoming the first player in league history to win the honor twice consecutively.

After failing to negotiate a deal with Portland, Alcaraz-Cuellar subsequently signed a contract with Cascadian arch-rivals Seattle Sounders in 2007. In Seattle he managed to contribute with two goals and eight assists, which tied him for second in the league in assists. Another notable achievement in Seattle was winning the double, in which he claimed his first USL First Division Championship. On February, 2010 he was ranked 15th in the USL First Division Top 25 of the Decade, which announced a list of the best and most influential players of the previous decade.
