Yari Allnutt (born February 2, 1970) is a retired American soccer player. He spent time with several lower division U.S. and Mexican clubs. He also played nine games with the New England Revolution. He was also part of the United States national team at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona.


Youth and college

While Allnutt was born in Baltimore, Maryland, his family moved to Mexico when he was one year old. He played street soccer in Mexico, but did not join an organized team until his family moved to San Diego, California when he was ten. Three years later, he began playing for the top youth club La Jolla Nomads, coached by Derek Armstrong. He moved up the clubs age groups, winning the McGuire Cup with the U-19 team. After graduating from high school in 1989, Allnutt played with the Nomads’ senior team, also coached by Armstrong, the San Diego Nomads of the Western Soccer League. That year the Nomads won the WSL championship, defeating the San Francisco Bay Blackhawks 1-0. That fall, Allnutt entered the University of Portland where he played forward on the Clive Charles coached men’s soccer team from 1989 to 1992. He was a four year starter on the team, scoring 27 goals and assisting on 17 others. He earned second team All American honors his senior year, 1992.

National teams

In 1991, he played for the U.S. at the Pan American Games. He scored a goal in a 2-1 first round victory over Honduras. In 1992, Allnutt continued to play for the junior national team when he started all three games for the United States at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. While Allnutt played forward for Portland, he slotted back into the midfield or defensive winger with the Olympic and national teams. The U.S. team went 1-1-1 in group play and failed to make the second round. He earned his first cap with the senior national team later that year when he came on for Cobi Jones in a September 3 victory over Canada.

He played one more game for the national team in 1992 and three in 1993. He scored in his only start for the team, a 4-1 loss to Honduras on March 25, 1993.

Professional career

In 1993, while his national team career was winding down, he embarked on his career as a professional player. While he had played with the San Diego Nomads in 1989, this was in an amateur capacity. In 1993, he joined the Los Angeles Salsa of the American Professional Soccer League.

Using his previous years living in Mexico, with his fluency in Spanish, Allnutt then moved to Mexico where he became a forward on Mexican First Division (division below the Premier Division) Inter de Tijuana. He scored 27 goals during his time with the team. He also spent time with Club Irapuato. While in Mexico, the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer drafted Allnutt in the 6th round (55 overall) of the 1996 MLS Inaugural Player Draft. However, the Revs released him on April 12, 1996. The Kansas City Wizards signed him and Allnutt played one game for the team. In that game, he was a second half sub, playing 45 minutes and scoring a goal against the Revs.

After being released by the Wizards, Allnutt joined the Carolina Dynamo for two seasons, earning team MVP honors both years. In 1996, he was the captain of the 1996 USISL Select League All Star Team. In 1997, he was the co-captain of the Dynamo and the team’s leading scorer. He was named to the league’s All Star list, known as the First XI, in 1997. On November 4, 1997 Allnutt signed with the Rochester Raging Rhinos. In 1998, he scored 14 goals and again made the A-League First XI. In 1999, Allnutt was part of the Rhinos team which took the 1999 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup becoming the only second division club to beat an MLS team (Colorado Rapids). Allnutt scored one of the goals for Rochester in that game. In 2000, the Rhinos continued its winning ways, by running away with the A-League championship, defeating the Minnesota Thunder 3-0 with Allnutt bagging one of the goals. [1] In 2001, Allnut again made the A-League First XI. His outstanding play led to the New England Revolution drafting him, for a second time, in the fourth round (42 overall) of the 2001 MLS SuperDraft. Allnutt played only nine games with the Revs, not scoring a goal and assisting on only one. On April 1, 2002, the Revolution announced that it would not exercise the option on midfielder Yari Allnutt's contract for the 2002 MLS season.

Allnutt rejoined the Rhinos in 2002 and in 2004 played 18 games, most as a substitute, scoring one goal for the team. That was his last season.
