Shelbyville lineman Noah Trimble is the second Shelbyville Ram lineman to make the jump to collegiate football in two years. Trimble signed recently to play football for Rockford college.

Last year, lineman Kam Roley went with quarterback, Turner Pullen to McKendree College. This Trimble is the sizable addition to a collegiate program. He is expected to play offensive tackle.

The Shelbyville Rams were 29-16 in Trimble’s four years. That included back-to-back Final Four appearances.    

“His frame is a factor,” said Shelbyville Ram coach Bill Duckett. “And, he’ll work real hard. A year ago, he probably wouldn’t have considered playing college football. He did pretty well last season and interest in him starting to rise. He will put on even more muscle and make him even bigger. They will put him in his natural position and build on what he’s got, his strength and his size against a defensive end.”

Trimble was pretty proud of his signing day. 

“I plan to play for all four years,” Trimble said. “I will major in History Education and will minor in coaching.”

“He’s ready to begin a new career,” said Ram assistant coach Brad Hilbert. “He’s a diamond in the rough, now. He’ll be even bigger next year.”   

He will be rooming with another incoming athlete in the freshman hall and report on August 15. 

“I have a workout portfolio and will begin workouts in mid May,” Trimble said.
