Men's Soccer - Tue, Jan. 29, 2013

Nathan Noble, a recent Georgetown College assist men's soccer coach, is another step closer to splitting the uprights of his dreams. The former Woodford County High School standout goalie and military veteran began to ‘kick' around the idea of playing football with one year of athletic eligibility left.

While coaching the Tigers he would occasionally find himself kicking field goals after practice with random football left on the practice surface. What he found was that he could still kick really well.

Now he has received the invitation to walk-on with Wyoming – the military pays for his education through the GI Bill. There are a few hurdles left to clear for the Versailles, Ky. native, but he's one step closer to realizing a dream he did not think possible as recent as this past summer.

Noble's story has picked up national attention including this article in Sports Illustrated called The Old Man and the Tee. For that story, click here.
