Noah Trotter has been part of ICEF Rugby in South LA since he was in 5th grade. In high school Noah was a stand-out player, quick and powerful with a knack for scoring tries. He also started for the football team. Noah went to Grand Canyon University in 2014-15 and was a starter in his first year. He also earned an Armstrong Leadership Scholarship for displaying leadership on the field, in the classroom and in his community.
Noah took a year off from Grand Canyon this year to work with ICEF Rugby’s 5th-12th grade rugby program as an assistant coach. Noah also joined the men’s club, Santa Monica, and started every game on the wing. Noah is returning to Grand Canyon University in August as a sophomore. Stuart, founder of ICEF very much feels that with the right support and resources, Noah could have a future in professional rugby. Additionally, he is committed to using the game to reach out to those less advantaged.
