Omar Fercha
Athletic Trainer

Omar Fercha, the second Cougar Alumni to be a part of the New Mexico State University athletic training family, recently graduated from Washington State University in May of 2010 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Athletic Training.  Before graduation in May, Fercha passed his BOC exam becoming a certified athletic trainer in April of 2010.  During his first year at NMSU, Fercha will be the key graduate assistant providing medical coverage during both the fall and spring seasons of football.  He will also be responsible for assisting in the clinical education of student athletic trainers as a clinical instructor in the CAATE accredited athletic training education program at NMSU.

While earning his degree in Athletic Training at Washington State University, Fercha was able to assist the certified athletic trainers with the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of injuries primarily with the men's and women's track and field teams, and the Cougar football program. He was also available to provide assistance with the practice coverage of the soccer, basketball, and baseball teams.  Along with WSU athletics, Fercha gained valuable experience in a multitude of medical venues; including Health and Wellness Centers, the ProFormance Physical Therapy clinic, Lewis and Clark State College, and Pullman High School.  In addition to these required rotations, Fercha volunteered his time to assist in the medical coverage of the USA Youth Judo Championships, Washington State B Basketball tournament, and the NAIA Regional volleyball championships.

One of the greatest moments during his undergraduate career as a student athletic trainer was catching a glimpse of Aggie excellence during the First round of the 2010 NCAA Basketball Tournament when the Aggies played a well fought game against Michigan State University.  He assisted with the medical coverage during the entire First and Second round of this 2010 NCAA Basketball Tournament.

Omar was born to Mohammed and Cheryl Fercha in Baltimore, MD, grew up in Kansas, but spent his high school career at Lake Roosevelt High School in Coulee Dam, Washington.  While at Lake Roosevelt High School, he portrayed his athletic ability by being a four year letter winner in football, basketball, and track and field.
