So the Penn State football team is heading
south just after Christmas. Seems everyone is
thinking about New Year's Day, Dallas and
Everyone, that is, except Randy Garber
and teammates on the Penn Sta V. soccer
team. For them it's early December,
National Championship, St. Louis and soccer.
"The prospects of going to the NCAA's are
real good," the senior forward said. "We
were sky high against some of the nationally
ranked teams we played early in the season,
but then we had a letdown. But I think we'll be
at a peak for the playoffs."
Garber transferred to Penn State last year
after a two-year stint at the Mercer (N.J.)
Community College. The Mercer soccer team
went to the small-college nationals both years
"The small schools didn't have very tough
schedules, but the eight teams in the cham
pionship could beat a lot of four-year
schools," he said.
When he arrived at Penn State, he played
under Herb Schmidt, who stepped down last
year to take an administrative post. In 12
games Garber had four assists and seven
goals. In the nine contests so far this year he
has five assists and two goals.
One of the first things he noted when he
stepped onto Jeffrey Field for his first game
in Blue and White was the size of the crowd.
"In front of four or five thousand people you
play harder," he noted. "You just get up a lit
tle more than when you play in front of 50 or 75
This season 28,100 fans turned out for six
home games under the lights at Jeffrey Field.

If NC State sees holes like thislSaturday the scorer will need an abacus
That total is a new Penn State record
According to Garber the record won't stand
very long. He says soccer at Penn State has a
big future and fans will stop and take notice.
The reason for the growth? Garber credits
the big name and the facilities.
"When a kid checks out a school he wants to
know who is the coach, what kind of facilities
are available and if the school offers his
major," Garber said. "Any kid who sees a
home game here, well, that's almost a ticket
Garber is a physical education major. After
graduation he wants to teach phys. ed. and
possibly coach. And of course he wants to play
"I would definitely try to play pro ball with
whoever would draft me," he said. "If no one
drafts me then I'll play, amateur ball. I've put
in too much time to just give up the game."
If the words of his Coach, Walt Bahr, mean
anything, Garber won't have to worry. Bahr
has been contacted by scouts from the North
American Soccer League regarding several
players on the Penn t State team and some
players from other schools in the region.
"I've heard from prlctically every team in
the league," Bahr said. "By the end of the
season they have a pretty good idea of who's
And what about Randy Garber?
Bahr says he'll definitely get drafted, along
With several other seniors on the squad.
' But for the moment Randy' Garber is con
tent playing out the season to the best of his
ability. Two more games and a possible trip
to the nationals.
Randy Garber might watch the Cotton
Bowl on NeW Year's Day, but he'd rather
