“He is a mauler. He stays after it,” Oologah coach Brandon Craig said. “He can go one-on-one matchups all night long. He has great footwork and runs a decent 40 time.
“He is a kid that can move well and he can move laterally really well. He can move side to side great.”
Noble also is a wrestler. Craig thinks that has helped him learn to use his hands to stay balanced and gain leverage on opposing linemen.
“The things he can do with his hands to manipulate the defense is key,” Craig said.
Noble is going to skip wrestling his senior season and stay in the weight room to prepare for college football.
“If I could play football every day of my life I would,” Noble said. “That's what's going to get me through college.”
Noble said he was surprised by the All-State selection.
“It's a great honor to be named with a lot of these guys,” he said.
