Subway Scholar Athlete - Noah Zoppi

Corning High School basketball star scores Scholar Athlete honor

Posted: Dec 14, 2017 11:51 PM

The Corning High School boys basketball program possesses a record of 56-11 dating back to the start of the 2015-2016 season. Noah Zoppi has been a big part of the success. And he's someone who goes big with the books. Action News Now's Ross Field has more with our Subway Scholar Athlete of the Week.

"First thing you need to know about Noah is he eats, breathes, and sleeps basketball. If he's not thinking about it, he's playing it. if he's not playing it, he's dreaming about it," said Coach Kurt Wilkins.

"Ill be the first to practice and the last one to leave. I just love the game so much," said Zoppi.

Passion is what you'd expect from someone playing the game since elementary school.

Noah Zoppi has lacing them up for both Corning High and AAU teams for years.

He's a three-year varsity starter.

"If you're going to be a leader you've got to lead by example and that starts with working hard, spending time in the gym, being coachable, being a good teammate and Noah is all those things," added Wilkins.

All those things that help him do it all for the reigning Northern Section Div-IV champs, but he's still hungry.

"In the offseason I worked on ballhandling, I worked on my passing, I worked on every facet of my game so that I knew no one could stop just one thing that I did," said Zoppi.

"The biggest area where he as improved this year is his defense because I know he wants to play college ball and you've got to be able to defend people at multiple positions," added Wilkins.

Zoppi doesn't have a school picked out yet, but he wants basketball to be a part of his future botn on the court and in the classroom.

"I would just love to coach the game of basketball and use my knowledge to make other people better," said Zoppi.

"He's a great student. His GPA is in the mid-to-high 3's. He's not taking the easy road like some kids do," said Wilkins.

He's Corning High's Noah Zoppi, our Subway Scholar Athlete of the Week.
