For the second time in two weeks, a Windsor High School football star has committed to play college football at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Offensive lineman Trenton “Tiny” Noller committed Sunday while meeting with coach Ken Niumatalolo on an official visit to Navy.
“It’s a huge weight off my shoulders,” Noller said from the airport Sunday on his way back to Colorado. “I love it here. They told me straight up that it will be hard, but I can get through it, and it will be more rewarding than if I go anywhere else.”
Windsor defensive end Zach Peck committed to Navy on Jan. 11.
Noller played most of his high school career at center but said Navy coaches said he might play anywhere from defensive tackle to the offensive line. Noller was rated as a four-star prospect before his senior season, but now is listed as a two-star by Rivals.com. According to Rivals, he received offers from Arizona, Army, Georgia Tech, New Mexico State, Northern Colorado and Wyoming in addition to Navy.
The 6-foot-4, 310 pounder said he likes Navy’s engineering program and likely will direct his schooling toward that program.
