Ali Said and junior Kylie Keiser, along with seniors Alex Kuehler, Corrin and Peterson earned Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete status.
Glasgow comes to Dakota Wesleyan with a resume full of soccer experience as a coach at all levels as well as a player. Most recently, Glasgow, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, was an assistant coach for the Augustana College women’s soccer team, as well as the varsity girls’ soccer coach at Sioux Falls Roosevelt High School.
Glasgow wrapped up his sixth year as an assistant at Augie in 2013, and helped the Vikings to a 10-8-1 record. He helped with recruiting and game analysis, as well as the organization of indoor tournaments and summer camps. Augustana went 54-40-11 in the regular season in his tenure.
At Roosevelt, Glasgow has been the head coach since the 2008 season. In his seven seasons with the Rough Riders, including one as the junior varsity coach, Roosevelt is 66-22-9 and won the 2012 and 2013 Class AA state titles. In those two seasons, Roosevelt went undefeated for 25 games. Glasgow has coached many Class AA All-State selections, and his team overall GPA is better than 3.5.
Glasgow also coaches the Dakota Alliance U13 girls’ team. He played soccer collegiately at Brewton Parker College in Mount Vernon, Ga., before transferring to Mount Marty College for his final two seasons from 2002-04. He earned All-GPAC First Team honors and was named the team’s MVP. He also played for the Sioux Falls Spitfire Premier Developmental team from 2004-06. He is B-license certified through the United State Soccer Federation.
