Noel is a great guy to have on your roster.
He'll do what the coaches say, he won't be a problem, and he's a leader. He is tough and he will compete. He won't be a star, but he is a valuable asset to come off your bench. He should have a career similar to guys like Rick Fox and George Lynch. Won't put up spectacular numbers, but he brings the intangibles every team needs.
All you need to know is that he was a football player who groomed himself, through hard work, into the productive leader of an overachieving team.
