Noah Van’t Hof (Alvord, Iowa) has signed a letter of intent to continue his football career at Northwestern College next fall.

Van’t Hof is a 6’0″, 185-pound running back and defensive back who played four years for West Lyon High School. Van’t Hof helped lead the Wildcats to the state semifinals with an 11-1 record as a senior despite missing most of the season due to injury. As a junior, he rushed for 524 yards on 61 carries and scored 10 touchdowns while also catching 21 passes for 240 yards and two scores. Defensively, he accounted for 24 tackles and three interceptions and was an all-district selection. Van’t Hof is the son of Doug and Lisa.

“Noah had his senior season derailed because of injury,” said Northwestern head coach Matt McCarty. “He is a talented player who has outstanding athleticism and was a playmaker on both sides of the ball during his junior year. We are confident that Noah will be a difference maker in our secondary during his career at Northwestern.”
