The QGHS offensive Co-Captain for the Running Stallions Soccer team recently signed a letter of commitment to play college soccer at Montreat College. He was one of the key leaders on an excellent team coached by Coach Mark Guercio.
Noah is a quiet young man with a heart of a lion. He is the type of player who gives it his all on the field. He is aggressive and will consistently push hard to penetrate the defense to keep constant pressure on his opponents. He will score important goals and keep his team close at all times.
As a leader he will lead by example which is basically hard work, consistent conditioning, practicing his footwork, kicking goals and improving his stamina as he would get a lot of playing time during games. He hopes to make the transition from high school to college as seamless as possible.
What keeps him motivated and focused is his deep faith which always comes first. Then secondly, it’s the inner drive to become the best soccer player possible and to make his dad proud. Noah’s father played college soccer and in a semi-professional league. Noah is truly excited about having the same opportunity to compete at the collegiate level.
While at Montreat College he plans to remain a solid student athlete and keep focused on getting a good education while playing the game he completely enjoys. He has an interest in ministry, engineering and criminal justice as a career choice. The writer was not able to meet up with Noah recently to find out if he has selected his major, however, whatever field he decides to enter he will follow vigorously and there is no doubt he will succeed. He appears to be one serious and dedicated individual who will pursue and accomplish his mission.
What guides and directs him is his faith in God. What inspires Noah is his father with all the support and effort he has put into helping him improve his soccer game over the years from youth soccer up through high school.
Noah would like to thank QGHS Soccer Coach Mark Guercio for always pushing him to become the best player possible. “His teammates are great we have all been very close like a family,” said Noah.
