Head Women’s Soccer Coach
Mount Marty College ’04
In his first season with the DWU women’s soccer team, Clay Glasgow led a Tiger team that defied preseason expectations
In 2014, Glasgow’s Tigers finished 9-10-1 overall and 4-5-1 in the GPAC. DWU finished sixth in the GPAC regular season after being picked to finish last and upset Midland in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament.
The Tigers were led in 2014 by senior forward Megan Johnson who set a DWU record with 23 goals in a season despite missing a large portion of the schedule due to an injury. Johnson was named GPAC Player-of-the-Week three times and earned an NAIA National Player-of-the-Week honor. She also was named to the All-GPAC First Team. Senior forward Thara Ali Said was named an All-GPAC Honorable Mention after scoring 13 goals in 2014.
Ali Said was joined by senior Kylie Keiser as Daktronics/NAIA Scholar Athletes in 2014 and the team earned its sixth National Soccer Coaches Association of America Team Academic Award for the 2013-14 school year.
In the GPAC tournament, the sixth-seeded Tigers upset No. 3 Midland University on the road with a 2-1 win on the strength of two goals from Alex Sterling. Over a two-game stretch early in the season Johnson scored 10 goals.
Glasgow came 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.
Glasgow and his wife, Andrea, currently live in Sioux Falls.
