Noboa accepts all-star game invitationMarch 4, 2016
ALLENTOWN, Pa. – Senior kicker Alex Noboa has been selected to participate in the second annual Globe Bowl, a collegiate all-star game designed to give players a final opportunity to impress professional scouts.
“This opportunity has been a dream of mine,” Noboa stated, “and to be invited to the bowl game is just an unbelievable honor. To see the hard work I’ve put into the sport being acknowledged is an incredible feeling.
“It’s also an opportunity for me to represent Brevard College and my hometown,” he continued. “I appreciate my family, coaches, and teammates being there with me every step of the way, because without them I would not be where I am.”
Noboa booted a career-long 44-yard field goal and was perfect on extra point attempts in 2015. His best year in a Brevard uniform, however, came during his junior year following his transfer from Chowan. Noboa went 7-for-8 on field goal tries, leading the conference in accuracy and finishing second among kickers with 63 points scored.
The Deltona, Florida native was named second team all-South Atlantic Conference in 2014 and earned an AstroTurf SAC Special Teams Player of the Week nod after going a perfect 9-for-9 on PAT’s and connecting on a 23-yard field goal in Brevard’s win over College of Faith. He entered the 2015 campaign as a preseason first team all-league selection.
Noboa is Brevard’s NCAA-era career leader in PAT percentage and is second in field goal percentage as well as field goals made and attempted. His 80 points scored rank 10th in the school’s NCAA-era record books, and he has a 54.0-yard average and four touchbacks on 69 career kickoffs.
Noboa will join dozens of other players at the Globe Bowl, which will be played on Sunday, April 3 in Allentown’s Salisbury Township Stadium. The game exists to give players a final opportunity for game film and combine testing and is run by the same organization responsible for administering the FCS National Bowl in Miami, a game that Kelvin Jeter, Jordan Ollis, and Michael Gruber participated in following the 2014 season.
Film from the game and combine will be distributed to all 32 NFL teams and over 270 scouts from the NFL and Canadian Football League. Seven teams representing the CFL and Arena Football League will be in attendance.
