Noah Bull ’22 has achieved a lot during his time at Loyola Blakefield. He began his football career as a freshman on the varsity squad and managed to start all four years—no easy feat. Higher expectations have followed each year, and he has risen alongside those expectations and met each of them head-on.
As a captain of Loyola’s varsity football team this year, he has built a reputation of excellence surrounding his name. “He’s always working. He is never really complacent with where he is,” said fellow teammate Maurice Barksdale ’22, who, along with Jason Hill ’23, went on to explain the kind of teammate Noah is. Both view him as an individual ready for the next level. Noah recently signed his National Letter of Intent to continue his academic and athletic career with the United States Naval Academy. He looks forward to studying engineering before going on to serve in the Navy.
One of his most memorable moments during his tenure at Loyola was catching the game-winning touchdown pass in the 101st Turkey Bowl to conclude his high school career. He also reflected on how his passion for competition and football came to be. “It all started with karate in my early childhood,” said Bull. He longed for a new challenge though, and this is what introduced him to his craft. Noah also reflected on the brotherhood and bonds created within the team. “Equity, tradition, and unity are three things that I love about my team at Loyola,” said Bull. “The brotherhood I have come to know begins and ends with those three things.”
There is little doubt that Noah has been and will continue to be a key contributor to the construction of a rich culture wherever he goes.
