3-sport star coming into his own, particularly in football
What a scout has to love about Nyberg is his versatility. The kid is just an athlete. Football is a game where coaches can plug and place athletes both up and down a lineup. Nyberg is a quality player in football, baseball, and basketball and we forecast his role, in the defensive backend for Class 6A McCracken County, will continue to expand.HB Lyon, Scouting Division, KPGFootball
We are down covering the Nashville AA Bowl today at David Lipscomb in Nashville, Tennessee. There are several kids playing from Kentucky in the game and several kids who are targets for any number of the college programs for which we scout.
This is one guy here who could certainly up his profile regularly working with Elite 3 Foundation and Riley Howard, it’s Director. Enjoy the article…
Noah Nyberg is a definite asset. The football coach at McCracken would agree with this. The baseball coach would agree. The basketball coach would agree.
Nyberg doesn’t take any time off. He was very active for the Mustangs on the gridiron this past year.
Nyberg, a ’24 defensive back, was among the leaders in tackles for his team, among the leaders in tackles for loss, and was second in INT’s. He was also second in Interception Return Net Yards (IRNY’s) to Jonathan Venable (6-INT’s, 213-IRNY’s with a “pick-six”).
Nyberg was among the leaders in passes broken up (PBU’s), a statistic not routinely kept in high school but certainly kept and commended in college. That is where we see this kid matriculating too.
We believe Nyberg would be a fine take for many of the small college programs around Kentucky particularly ones with rigorous academic components as he is also a fine student. There are several programs around the commonwealth who would fit this bill.
Looking at Nyberg’s college interest, we see several different college programs interested in Nyberg as either a baseball or football player. Being able to play both collegiately, affords programs some unique ways to package the money permitting him admission to some elite institutions.
That just makes good sense. That is a ton of “bang for the buck.”
Nyberg needs to have a big offseason this summer and get some elite training to propel him into a senior year rift with “suitors” for his services. We think this time, next year, we will be reporting on his signing.
