Minnick is a 6’0”, 225-pound offensive lineman who was a three-year starter for MOC-Floyd Valley High School. Minnick earned first team all-district honors three years and was an all-Northwest Iowa selection as a junior. He was voted team captain both as a junior and senior and was part of a MOC-Floyd Valley team that qualified for the playoffs in 2014. Minnick plans to major in elementary education at Northwestern and is the son of Bill and Ann.
“Noah is an outstanding leader and young man,” said head Northwestern coach Matt McCarty. “He is a strong, physical player who is an excellent addition to our team and defensive line.”
