Scott Bower (born June 27, 1978, Port Angeles, Washington) is a retired American soccer midfielder who played professionally in Major League Soccer.

Youth[edit]

Bower grew up in Florida where he played for the Flordida State U-17 soccer champion with the Tampa Bay Kickers. In 1996, he graduated from Gaither High School where he was an All State soccer player. Bower began his collegiate career with Stetson University from 1996 to 1997. In August 1997, he also played for the Clearwater Chargers who won the U-19 US Youth Soccer National Championships.[1] He then transferred to Clemson University where he played his junior season in 1998. Clemson was ranked number one in the Country for most of the season, only losing one game.[2] In the Atlantic Coast Conference final, Bower scored the game-winning goal over the Duke Blue Devils.

Professional[edit]

In January 1999, Bower left college when he signed with the Major League Soccer Project-40. In February, MLS assigned Bower to the San Jose Clash. In July 2002, he played four games on loan to the Portland Timbers of the USL A-League.[3] The Earthquakes waived him at the end of the 2002 season.
