Noah Hoffner has been selected as the Warrior Watch’s Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending on 9/19/20. Hoffner had a big football game last Saturday against the Moshannon Valley Knights. He contributed four catches for a total of 113 yards and two touchdowns in a 42-7 win for the Warriors. Last year, Hoffner got the most receiving yards in a single season as a Warrior. This year, he looks to break the All-Time Receiving Yards Record at West Branch.

“Noah has an exceptional work ethic. He practices extremely hard and works every day to perfect his craft.  Noah has put in countless hours to earn the success that he is having,” said head coach Kevin Hubler. He looks forward to Noah having a huge year for the Warriors, just like he did as a junior. “Any time you are talking about setting records and breaking records, you are doing good things within the program. As far as Noah breaking and setting records, he deserves everything that comes his way.  Anytime an athlete works as hard as Noah has, they deserve everything that comes their way.”

Noah Hoffner plays wide receiver and sometimes plays as a free safety as well. He has been playing football for four years. “I like the competition there is in football. Every week there is a whole new team to scout and a whole new team to game plan for,” said Noah Hoffner.
