The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / High School Football Spotlight: Noah Smith Offensive and Defensive Tackle Landmark Eagles

High School Football Spotlight: Noah Smith Offensive and Defensive Tackle Landmark Eagles

In the Spotlight Noah Smith!
Publish Date: 05/21/2021
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

1- What is the best thing about playing football for the Landmark Eagles?

I’d say the best thing about playing for Landmark is the brotherhood we have between players. The season doesn’t last forever, everybody has to hang up the cleats eventually, but the bond I’ve made with a lot of my teammates will be there forever.

2-6’5 315 pounds, 4.16 GPA. You have the grades and the size many college coaches love. Have you heard from any schools about playing at the next level?

I’ve heard from a lot of coaches personally at the NAIA and d2-d3 level mostly invited for official visits or invitations to summer camps or combined. There’s been some interest from D1 schools as well. I just want the opportunity to play somewhere and I’ll be grateful for any opportunity to play at the next level.

3- Landmark Christian does not get to participate in the OHSAA football playoffs but you do get to go play in a huge tournament in Flordia. Can you tell our readers how important playing in the tournament in Florida is to you and your team?

The tournament in Florida is the goal every year. When I wake up in the morning to lift weights that what I’m thinking about. In practice throughout the season, everything’s done with that goal in mind, we just have a lot of competitive guys on our team determined to win.

4- Is there a public or private school in Ohio you wish you guys could play during the regular season? Which one?

I try not to dwell on the teams we can’t play or don’t have the opportunity to play. My focus is on the 14-15 games that were scheduled for, we gotta work to get where we need to be and can’t really afford to focus on anything other than that.

5- Which league game do you want to win the most?

I don’t think there’s any one team in our league that I want to beat the most. I try to just take everything week by week during the season. There are plenty of teams or schools I want to try and beat the brakes off of and get revenge on but I do my best to focus on what I need to do and not let emotion get the best of me.

6- Do you play any other sports at Landmark?

I’ve just been a one-sport athlete for all of high school, football season never really ends for me. After the last game of the season, I’ll relax for a week and then I’ll get back on it, in the winter and spring I’m always trying to grind and perfect my craft in the offseason, lifting weights, condition, etc.

7- What type of music do you listen to the most?

For pregame music, I usually go with older stuff. Enter Sandman by Metallica and “In the Air Tonight.” by Phil Collins will always be my go-to songs to get hyped up.

8-What is your favorite class?

My favorite class is probably English. I’ve been thinking of majoring in it.

9- Which is harder run blocking or pass blocking?

Pass blocking is definitely harder in my opinion. I’ve spent a lot of this past off-season trying to master different pass-blocking sets to keep my QB safe. There are just so many ways you can get beat in pass blocking, d lineman use bullrush, swim move, club, rip move, and a lot of other methods. There are big dudes that just try to brute force their way through the line, there are quick guys that try to speed around you, and there are guys that are a mix of both, I just watch a lot of film and try to adapt to what my opponent will try to beat me with.

10- Who is your favorite pro football team?

It’s the Bengals, I’m excited to see what Joe Burrow does with Ja’marr Chase.
