ROCHESTER, NY -- The Rochester Rhinos announced today that they have signed goalkeeper Scott Vallow to a two-year contract pending USSF and USL approval.
“The Rhinos organization is excited to be bringing back a player that exemplifies what it means to be a Rochester Rhinos player on and off the field,” said Rob Clark, Rhinos CEO. “Scott has entrenched himself in the community being actively involved in various charities as well as the youth soccer community.”
Vallow, who will enter his ninth season with Rochester in 2010, has played professional soccer for eleven years. His extensive professional resume includes brief spells in Major League Soccer with Dallas in 1999 and 2002, and Colorado during the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
Last season, the veteran keeper appeared in 19 regular season matches and led the Rhinos in wins (7) and saves (69). The Modesto, California native is the Rhinos all-time leader in wins, saves, shutouts and ties.
“My family and I are very excited to continue my soccer career in Rochester and play for the club I am proud of and have so much passion for,” said Vallow. The 1998 graduate of Bowling Green State University will be honored this weekend as he is being inducted into the BGSU Athletic Hall of Fame in a ceremony taking place on Saturday, October 26 in Bowling Green, Ohio.
Vallow is currently the Director of Player Development for Cobras FC, conducts goalkeeper camps, clinics, private lessons and academies in the Rochester area through his Train Like A Champion goalkeeper development program and supports Camp Good Days and Special Times.
