OMAHA, NEBRASKA: Coach Locke and the men's soccer team are excited to announce the signing of Noah Bishop, a 5'11" sophomore transferring from Metropolitan Community College.
Noah Bishop, the son of James and Robin Bishop, graduated from Bellevue East High School in 2016. He attended Metropolitan Community College for a year and is now transferring to Grace University as a sophomore. He spends his free time coaching younger kids to help them get better at soccer, playing indoor soccer with his friends, and beekeeping with his girlfriend. Bishop plans to major in business at Grace.
Bishop played varsity soccer all four years of high school under Stephen Muller. He earned the Mr. Hustle Award from his school his sophomore, junior, and senior seasons for his hard work and dedication. Bishop's coach created the Mr. Unselfish Award specifically for Bishop because of his willingness to do whatever the team needed to be done. He also played in the Nebraska Shrine Soccer Classic, which was a huge honor.
"I chose Grace because they gave me the opportunity to continue my education while being able to be a part of a team," Bishop said. "I really like the team and Coach Locke, which led me to believe this was the best choice for my career in the future."
"Noah brings a strong positive attitude and constant competitiveness that will certainly boost the team," says Coach Locke. "Although new to the team, Noah has already shown a willingness and ability to lead that usually comes from veteran players. We are excited to see how he contributes to the team."
