Head coach Tim Corbin on Noland: “Self-made young man in every way…asks for nothing, just works for it. Invests a lot of time in everything that he does. He is very connected to what he is doing academically and athletically. Really enjoys playing all facets of offense and has continued to grow as a defensive player. Has “baseball player” fibers and can do many different things on the field to help you win.”
