by Andy Hilton, recruit757
The Bay Rivers District strikes again! In a district that once seemed relegated to feeding only Division I-AA, Division II and Division III schools, talent has risen to the surface that has the Power Five and Group of Five schools calling. That also has more players from the BRD landing in our annual recruit757 Fab 30 countdown for the rising senior class.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #13 senior prospect region-wide is Warhill linebacker and running back Noah Holmes.
#13 Noah Holmes (2019 OLB/RB 6-2 200) – Warhill High School
Noah has a strong bloodline. His dad played college ball at East Carolina.
You might say that Noah bucks the trend considering that he looks just as much at home on the beach as he does on the gridiron. Fans might remark about his flowing locks of blond hair, but college coaches are remarking about his athletic ability, including his tenacity and knack for delivering a hard hit. He’s also productive on the offensive side of the ball.
In his junior season, Holmes piled up the stats. Defensively he delivered 103 tackles, 10.8 tackles per game, 9 sacks and 17 TFL. On the offensive side, Holmes had 673 rushing yards on 80 carries for an average of 8.5 yards per carry.
In our last check with Noah, he had picked up scholarship offers from Elon, Charlotte, Richmond and Towson in the month of June. He adds those to the offers from Hampton, Old Dominion, Southern Illinois, Fordham and Howard that came in prior to the summer.
