Noble’s Isaac Vass – Academic Athlete of the Month Presented by Republic Bank & Trust

Varsity soccer player and starting center-back for the Noble Bears, senior Isaac Vass loves his team and loves representing Noble High School. 

“I love the energy between my teammates before a game and the family we have become. We all have very strong and different personalities, but the trust and connection between each player is unparalleled by any other team,” said Vass. 

With new head coach, Joe Rohr, making his return to coaching after a five year layoff, the expectations are growing for this program. Expectations Vass believes the team can meet. 

“I expect for my team to make playoffs and to have a better record than last year,” said Vass. “The coaching staff at NHS is outstanding and our head coach is one of the best. Our school and our team wouldn’t be what it is today without him.”

Now a senior, Vass started playing the game at five with many of his teammates. 

“I started playing soccer when I was five years old. A few years later I joined a team that stayed together for years and now, over a decade later, we are all playing high school soccer together again,” said Vass. 

Vass is a 4.0 student, class valedictorian and someone coach Rohr calls, “the epitome of a student-athlete.” 

“Academics are very important to me. I am a valedictorian and I strive to always keep myself academically challenged,” said Vass. “I am a member of the National Honor Society and I am also a captain on the soccer team. After high school I plan on attending SWOSU for pharmacy and becoming a pharmacist.”

Vass said his father has been a big influence in his life.

“My dad has shown me through example how to be a hard worker, a loving father, and a leader. I strive to be half the man my dad is someday,” said Vass. 

Vass said he enjoys bass fishing after being introduced to the sport his sophomore year.

“In my free time I enjoyed bass fishing. It has since become a very expensive leisure activity.”
