Congratulations to senior Noah Dobbs, whose 3.9+ GPA is propelling him to John Carroll University on a four-year academic scholarship valued at $100,000.
Dobbs, who played on the 2021 DLS State Championship Football team, will play football at John Carroll, a Division 3 school. An offensive lineman, Dobbs notes that Division 3 schools do not offer athletic scholarships.
“I fell in love with the campus and culture,” Dobbs said. “I look forward to spending four years there. If football is taken away, I will still be happy to be there. I am really excited.”
Dobbs plans to major in business, or possibly marketing or finance.
His current DLS academic schedule includes AP Computer Science.
He noted that Mrs. Aarran Meier is his favorite teacher, because “she connects well with all of her students. She understands high school boys, and is super cool with all of us.”
Dobbs, brother of DLS alumnus Jacob Dobbs, ‘19, now playing football at Holy Cross in the Patriot League, noted one of his favorite memories at DLS came as a freshman. Noah was brought up to the varsity for the 2018 playoffs and was able to be on the same team as his senior brother as DLS won the state championship.
“Winning the state championship as a senior, and leaving as a state champion will always be one of my favorite memories,” he said.
Dobbs also plays lacrosse at De La Salle.
Dobbs attended elementary and middle school in the Chippewa Valley District.
He lives in Macomb Township with his parents, Louis, ‘89, and Michelle Dobbs. The family belongs to St. John Vianney Parish in Shelby Township.
