    Not only is Mr. Noaeill a big music lover and performer, but he also loves his sports as wel.  He is a fan of the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Tigers, Atlanta Braves, Detroit Red Wings, and plays with his friends in a fantasy football league, a fantasy baseball league, and a fantasy hockey league.  He played baseball, basketball, and ran track during his grade school days and continues to participate in sports whenever he can.  He plays in a softball league with his friends during the summer and fall seasons and coached the JV baseball team at Martin High School.

    Mr. Noaeill is excited about what the school year will bring from the band.  Every year is a new experience and every band is a different band.  Maintaining and growing the success of the Lakewood High School Band Program is a priority and one that is fun to work towards.  Mr. Noaeill strives to work hard, stay humble, and be kind everyday.  He reminds his students that in the band we have Integrity, Community, and Excellence.
