Going back to the age of seven, Noah Flint has been playing the game of soccer at a high level. He played recreational soccer for Clifton Park and started playing club soccer at the age of 10. It is a game that has created a special opportunity for him.
Flint has played his entire school career at Shenendehowa. Attaining exceptional personal and team success. There is not much that has stood in the way of him and his team.
Flint posted an exceptional 91% save percentage to go along with 62 saves and 8 shutouts this past season. Flint hopes to add some more shutouts to his name next season in hopes of breaking the school record of 32. He currently stands at 21. An attainable goal if the season is not cut short as it was this previous season due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Flint also has the awards to back up his play on the field. He has won the NYSPHSAA Student-Athlete Award in 2018 and 2019, Second Team All-Suburban Council 2019, and First Team All-Suburban Council 2020. He is looking to add to that this upcoming season.
Flint credits a majority of his success to his goalkeeper coach and South Colonie girls varsity soccer coach Ryan Edson. He has been Flint’s goalkeeper ever since he joined NYEFC. “He has played a big part in my success and my development as a player”, Flint said when asked about Edson’s impact.
Flint excels in being a vocal leader on and off the field which is something that not a lot of players possess consistently. He also excels in aerial saves and his ball distribution. One thing he told me that he could work on was their defensive organization for corners. Being fundamentally sound on corner kicks is not as easy as people would like to think, it takes an exceptional amount of working together that Flint hopes to improve on.
Looking forward, Flint has not yet committed to any school but hopes to play soccer beyond high school and maybe even beyond college. Whichever school he decides on he will be an immediate impact on their soccer team and to their school.
