High marks for Brooke Point signal-caller Noah Sanders

We saw Noah Sanders (2022 QB 6-2 215) several times in 2020, despite the lack of a season.
Noah camped with recruit757 in a Spotlight Camp over the summer and we saw him at the Elite 11 event in Virginia Beach.
2020 was the year for Sanders to land his first offers. Continued hard work has led to continued offers and interest for the quarterback.
Late last week, Sanders picked up an opportunity to play for Yale of the Ivy League. Just as a reminder, Yale is Division I FCS, but they don’t allow athletic scholarships. Instead, athletes qualify just like every other student and they compete for academic scholarships and financial aid like every student at those institutions.
Brooke Point Head Coach Dwight Hazelwood shared the news and gave us an update on Sanders.
“Coach Cahill (Yale offensive coordinator and assistant head coach Kevin Cahill) is excited about him. Columbia and ODU have also sent an offer to him as well. His recruiting phone has been buzzing while he’s been leading our offense during these practices,” Hazelwood reported. “Coach Rahne (Old Dominion) and his staff checks on him often as well.”
All Glory to God! After talking with @coach_cahill I am blessed to say I received an Ivy League offer from @yalefootball. @JeffRPlace @BPBHawkFootball @CoachDHaze @UNDEFEATEDQBT @mdotbell_ @EdOBrienCFB pic.twitter.com/SBE3tJ4h5T

Sanders’ offer list is up to four, including the Ivies. Old Dominion, Charlotte, Columbia and Yale have each offered and other schools are certainly showing interest.
Noah and his Brooke Point squad are busy practicing for a shortened spring season that starts next week.
“He’s become more cerebral and is heavily involved in the game planning and practices,” said Hazelwood. “He competed in the Elite 11 and is now invited to the Region level.”
Brooke Point opens their season at Colonial Forge on Monday, February 22.
