Scott Vallow

Assistant Coach

Scott Vallow is in his 6th season as an assistant coach for the Western New York Flash, after a lengthy professional soccer career as a goalkeeper.

 

Vallow spent the 2002 season shuttling between the USL and MLS, as he was signed and released by both the New England Revolution and the Dallas Burn; Vallow also played for the Rhinos, making eight appearances and sharing duties with Pat Onstad. Following the 2002 season, Vallow finally made a more permanent move up to the first division, being signed by the Colorado Rapids; although he was with the team for two years, Vallow was employed largely as a backup to Scott Garlick and then Joe Cannon. Vallow played in only four games during his two years with the team. He re-signed with the Rhinos after the 2004 MLS season, where he was the number one keeper, team captain, and fan favorite, announced on the pitch with the "Superman" theme playing at every home game. On October 20, 2009 Vallow extended his contract with the Rhinos for another 2 years. However, he would announce his retirement after only one year, in January 2011, choosing to focus on being an assistant coach for the Western New York Flash.
