TAMPA/INDIANAPOLIS – Indy Eleven goalkeeper Jordan Farr today earned his first career placement on the USL Championship Team of the Week presented by Cleer Audio.
The fourth-year netminder for Indiana’s Team garnered the plaudit for his dominant, five-save performance that helped Indy Eleven shut out its archrival Louisville City FC 1-0 last Saturday night at IUPUI Carroll Stadium. Farr now has five of the squad’s six shutouts during the 2021 campaign and has posted a solid 1.26 goals against average across his 19 starts this season.
Farr became the fifth member of the Boys in Blue to secure a spot on the Championship’s weekly best XI in 2021, joining Nicky Law (Week 17), Neveal Hackshaw (Week 10), Gordon Wild (Week 6), and Jordan Hamilton (Week 5). The Championship’s Player of the Week is selected by the USL National Media Panel, which is made up of representatives from each media market in the Championship.
