Barclay College Men’s Soccer added more depth last week by signing Idle Dahir from Murray, Utah. Playing in the defensive back position, Dahir helped lead Murray High School to a 4A region championship and a state finals appearance. In addition to playing high school soccer, he has also played both club soccer and in the Olympic Development Program since arriving in the United States from Somalia in 2004.
Dahir considers soccer a blessing from God and his goal is to achieve a bachelor’s degree, and to someday work in the area of physical therapy. He concluded, “I have found the right home.”
Head Coach Lee said, “Eli has great talent, and a great spirit, he will be a perfect addition to our team.”
