Playing Honours:

Growing up juggling his loves of Basketball and Football, Noah excelled as both as a junior until the age of 15 when Basketball raised a notch meaning a decision between the two had to be made. Basketball was the ultimate winner at the time and it certainly paid dividends which included travelling to the US to play for the Australian Elite Team to play against some of the best young US talent.

Whilst it was a unforgettable experience for Noah, playing against the younger bothers of some of the NBA All Stars, Noah decided to shift his focus back to Football in 2018 and play for the Gippsland Power. Starting the season down back, Noah quickly found his feet after a short absence from the game, however once he was swung forward six weeks into the year was when Noah showed his natural ability as a forward to create opportunities.

A brilliant contested mark, with great agility, and a competitive streak, Noah had a terrific season finishing with 31 goals from his 18 games. Receiving an invitation to the State Combine, Noah tested and interviewed well as a number of clubs showed interest in drafting him. As the Draft unfolded, Noah was selected by the Essendon Football Club where they plan to play him as a forward alongside fellow young forward, Joe Daniher.
