Former NIC soccer player goes pro


|photo1|Former North Idaho College soccer player Brian Farber is enjoying a successful first season in the Major Indoor Soccer League as a rookie midfielder for the California Cougars.
 
Farber, a 23-year-old from Sandpoint, played at NIC from 2000 to 2001 and went on to play at Oregon State University before joining the Cougars, an indoor soccer team in Stockton, Calif. He is the first soccer player from North Idaho College to play professional soccer.
 
Farber has played in the team’s first 19 games and has three goals, one assist and 12 blocks.
 
“Brian Farber is not the most technical player we have, but he is faster than the ball,” said California Cougars Coach Troy Dayak in a team press release. “Every day he does something to surprise you.”
 
Farber was also mentioned recently in a league all-star game players’ poll as an up-and-coming player in the league.
