2024 – “Noah would be the least surprising name to see on the injured reserve list, yet he is rarely found there. Witnessing him place his body in the middle of the fray, seemingly unaware that everyone else is brandishing their sticks like weapons, and repeatedly come away from the scrum with the ball is a wondrous site to behold as his coach. This trait of Noah’s says it all. It defines his character and how he attacks everything within his realm. Though a defensive specialist for us, Noah is just as comfortable creating and scoring goals.” 2023 – “Noah brings his proverbial lunch pail to every training session.  No team or organization can be successful without those who are willing to do the dirty work and to be the glue to keep things together.  Noah became a man we depended upon more and more as the 2022 season progressed, and this reliant trajectory continues to trend upward.  He plays the short-stick defensive midfield position with all of the grit and tenacity that is necessary, plus some.” 2022 – Relentless best describes the drive witnessed in this man. Attacks everything with a faster, more determined edge than is the norm. He arrived in Charlottesville qualified to play any field position, training as a short-stick defensive midfielder. This first-year he is already proving that he can handle the mental and physical demands of the position.”
