John "Jack" Traynor (born March 17, 1987, in St. Charles, Missouri) is a former American soccer player.


College and Amateur[edit]

Traynor attended Francis Howell North High School in St. Charles, Missouri and played college soccer at the University of Notre Dame, where he was named to the College Soccer News `100 Freshmen to Watch' list, and was named a Big East Academic All-Star as a junior.


Traynor was drafted in the second round (29th overall) of the 2009 MLS SuperDraft by the New York Red Bulls, but was not offered a contract by the team.

After an unsuccessful trial with Aalesunds FK in Norway,[1] Traynor signed with Miami FC of the USL First Division. He made his professional debut on April 26, 2009, coming on as a substitute in Miami's game against Rochester Rhinos.[2] On February 12, 2010, he signed with AC St. Louis [3]

Following St. Louis folding after their one and only season in 2010, Traynor signed a multi-year contract with new USL Pro club Orlando City on March 15, 2011.[4] Traynor spent only the 2011 season in Orlando, helping the club win the USL Pro championship, before signing with USL side Rochester Rhinos on November 28, 2011.[5]


Jack's brother, Will Traynor, is also a professional soccer player.
