Area Athlete of the Week: Coyle's Noble baffles Carney batters

STILLWATER, Okla. — Coyle senior Laine Noble is a fan of crime mystery shows like CSI and NCIS. Just like the actors solve crimes on that show, Noble was able to methodically work through the Carney Bulldogs lineup in a shutout victory on March 27. His performance on the mound earned him News Press Athlete of the Week.

Noble pitched three innings and only allowed one hit and struck out six batters. The senior said he has a strong focus pitching.

“It’s just me on the mound,” Noble said. “I don’t even worry about runners on bases. I just focus on striking people out.”

The senior’s most impressive performance was at the plate. With an 0-2 count in the bottom of the first, Noble hit the ball over the left field wall for a three-run home run for Coyle’s first runs of the game. In his next two at-bats, Noble hit two doubles and drove in a run.

“I was just asking God for help and he did,” Noble said. “I didn’t know it was going to go out but when it did it was the greatest feeling in the world.”

Noble came off the bench last year on the Bluejackets’ state runner-up basketball team. After the season he moved to Putnam City West but didn’t play baseball during the spring. Before the school year, Noble moved back to Coyle. He said he wants to make the most of his last season.

“Coach (Josh) Sumrall helped me get eligible,” Noble said. “I’m really happy I got to play this year. I want to do all I can this year because it is my last year.”

After he graduates, Noble is planning to head to the University of Central Oklahoma where he is going to major in forensic chemistry.

“I spent a week up there,” Noble said. “Got to learn the basics of chemistry. I enjoy it and love science. I figured out what I wanted to do with my life.”
