I had the pleasure of interviewing Noble, during which time he told me more about his background, his personality and his overall love for football
C: For the people who do not know your story, how did you wind up choosing San Diego State University?
NH: It all started by meeting Coach Horton while he was recruiting. San Diego is a beautiful place and being from Las Vegas it was a close destination from home.
C: How do you plan on making yourself stand out and noticed by NFL scouts?
NH: I plan marketing myself to NFL scouts and having a great upcoming senior season to put my name on the board.
C: What would you say are your strengths and weaknesses?
NH: I feel as if a strength of mine would be speed coming off the ball and the usage of my hands. A weakness of mines would be my footwork on the field.
C: What separates you from the other players at your position?
NH: I believe what separates me from other players at my position would be my determination and time that I put in on and off the field.
C: Which current or former NFL player do you think you resemble and why?
NH: I’ve watched a lot of JD Clowney’s college tape, and at time his play reminded me of myself.
C: Who is the toughest player you’ve ever faced in your college career?
NH: Bryce Love, RB from Stanford. He’s a great running back that gave me great competition.
C: What was it like converting from being a defensive tackle to playing defensive end?
NH: Well first I was converted from a DE to a NT. That initial switch was challenging for me because I had no experience at the Nose position. Being able to get back out at DE felt great because I had experience deep in the trenches playing nose for 2 seasons.
C: When did you first fall in love with playing football?
NH: I think I fell in love with football before I had even played my first season on Pop Warner football. Football has always drawn my attention at a young age because it was so much to the game.
C: How do you prepare for game day? Do you have any game day rituals?
NH: Not any crazy rituals. I just make sure I listen to some good music that gets me hyped for the game.
C: What should people reading this interview know about you?
NH: People should know that dominance isn’t determines by the conference you play in.
