Ron Glick (Hebrew: רון גליק‎‎; born January 23, 1985 in Branford, Connecticut[citation needed]) is an Israeli professional football (soccer) player currently contracted by Maccabi Petah Tikva.

Playing career[edit]

Glick made his senior debut in a Toto Cup match during the 2004/05 season. The next season, he made his Israeli Premier League debut against Beitar Jerusalem as a substitute in the ninetieth minute. Four rounds later, Glick found himself in the starting eleven against F.C. Ashdod. The 2006/07 season was due to be his breakout year, but a rash of injuries relegated him to seeing most matches from the stands.

After returning from injury, Glick hired a personal trainer to stay return to match fitness. He also had an unsuccessful trial with Toronto FC in the American MLS,[1] later San Jose Earthquakes and Columbus Crew in May 2008.[2] In May 2009, Glick moved to Australian club FC Oont, on a free transfer. He has subsequently been named captain and helped the team to a runners up finish for the 2010 season, scoring a few key goals in the process.

National Team[edit]

On February 9, 2004 Glick made his debut with the Israeli under-19 squad against their counterparts from Romania. The two game series, one match in Kiryat Ata, the other in Ra'anana, were the only appearances that Glick has made for a national side at any age level.

Personal life[edit]

In September 2009, Glick heroically rescued a person drowning in the Mediterranean Sea. Glick was on the beach in Herzliya when he heard someone screaming for help. No lifeguards were present so Glick grabbed a surfboard and was able to save the person from drowning.[3]

Model career[edit]

Glick is also a male model formerly with the Roberto Modeling Agency in Israel, he recently signed with Ford Models in the USA.
