"The coaching staff was probably the best thing," said Trenton Noller, whose nickname is "Tiny". "I just really like the area; Annapolis is great. Of course the education is really prestigious. I just really got along with everyone there including the players and coaches. I just felt like it was home."
Noller won All-State honors last season at Windsor High School in Colorado. Tiny, who benches well over 325 pounds and squats 530 pounds, was also named to the Denver Post All-Colorado team.
Noller said this weekend he committed to Ken Niumatalolo in the Navy head coach's office. Tiny says he had visited the Naval Academy last summer but wanted to made a return trip to make sure it was really where he wanted to go.
Center is a position Noller played regularly at until his senior year. He then slit time at left tackle and center.
Noller says the Navy coaches really liked his aggressiveness on the field.
"I think they looked at me because I'm nasty on the field," commented Noller. "I think I'm more of a good run blocker, way better than pass blocker, and so I fit right in with what they do."
Noller says the Navy staff will let him decide what position he wants to play but the coaches mentioned center, guard, nose tackle and offensive tackle as possible options.
Noller, who earned the nickname "Tiny" while in middle school, also had offers from Arizona, Georgia Tech, Wyoming, New Mexico State, Northern Colorado and Army.
Noller the second Windsor player to commit to Navy this month. Zach Peck committed to the Mids staff earlier in the month.
