During his time with the Knights, Gordon also played for the Baton Rouge Capitals in the USL Premier Development League, scoring one goal in 14 games and helping the Capitals to the PDL national playoff semifinals in 2010.
After great two great seasons with the Lynn University Knights, Gordon was drafted with the 53rd overall pick in the 2011 MLS Supplemental Draft by FC Dallas.
“Scott is a great talent,” says managing partner Douglas Heizer. “Having him play in the city where it all began for him is special, not only for him, but for the entire city of Boca Raton.”
“He’s a quality player,” added general manager/head coach, Marcelo Castillo. “I’ve see Scott play in every level and having a player like him is big for us.”
Gordon has had stints in Major League Soccer’s FC Dallas, and Chivas USA, as well as with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers of the North American Soccer League.

“I’m incredibly thankful to the entire Boca Raton FC organization for putting faith in me this upcoming season,” says Gordon. “Boca Raton is my home and I’m excited to suit up for this team as soon as possible.”
Gordon will be available to suit up for his hometown team on October 10 versus Miami Storm FC, upon serving his three-game suspension given to him by the American Premier Soccer League Executive Board.
