South’s Noble commits to McMurry University



ABILENE, TX – United South defensive end William Noble always dreamed of committing to play college football. He has given it his all to hopefully obtain such a goal. And that dream finally came to fruition on Wednesday as Noble committed to McMurry University in Abilene, Texas.

“I’m extremely excited, honored, humbled and blessed to be able to play at the next level,” Noble said. “It’s always been a dream of mine. So, for me to accomplish this is definitely exciting.”

Noble committed to McMurry because he felt at home when he took an official visit. Not only that, but he enjoyed how the university will help him with his academic career too as it offers one-on-one student and teacher meetings.

The defensive end was a standout in his lone varsity season with the Panthers. Noble earned first-team All-District 29-6A accolades as he recorded 25 tackles, five tackles for loss, three sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He was also a key cog in a defense that helped United South claim its first outright district championship.

Noble will start his career as a defensive lineman. However, he knows he could switch positions once he arrives on campus.

“I will still be playing D-line at McMurry as of right now,” Noble said. “In the future, I may be moved to linebacker, but as of right now, I’m still going to play D-line.”

Noble obviously wants to become an impact player for the War Hawks over time. He hopefully wants to become a leader of the program one day. However, he has goals that go beyond the field, too.

“My goals in college are to continue growing as an academic scholar and athlete,” Noble said. “Hopefully that can get me to become a professional athlete and continue learning how to become a better person in the communities I’ve been in as well as for those who I surround myself with.”

Noble joins a program that went 0-10 under first-year head coach Jordan Neal last season. McMurry plays in the American Southwest Conference, which features programs such as Hardin-Simmons, Mary Hardin-Baylor and Texas Lutheran.
