The Duke Automotive-Suffolk News-Herald male and female Fall Players of the Year for 2015 shined on the gridiron and the field hockey pitch, respectively. One finished with one of the best senior seasons imaginable and the other emerged as team MVP though only a sophomore. Nansemond-Suffolk Academy senior football star Noah Giles and Nansemond River High School sophomore field hockey standout Ashlyn Rogers accepted the awards during a presentation on Monday at Duke Automotive.
“We’re just really proud of both of them,” Duke Automotive vice president Eley Duke said. “They’re both very deserving, they’re at the top of their sports, and I hope they both go on and do fantastic things with that.”
“I want to congratulate Noah and Ashlyn, great student athletes who had a superb year,” Suffolk News-Herald Publisher John Carr said. We want to thank Duke Automotive whose sponsorship made this possible, and we look forward to hearing of many more successes from Noah and Ashlyn.”
Noah Giles cemented a place for himself in NSA history with a season in which he carried the ball 215 times for 2,042 yards and 28 touchdowns, averaging 9.5 yards per carry and 170.2 yards per game. To continue reading the article in The Suffolk News-Herald, please click here.
