Central athlete Noah Cameron signed his National Letter of Intent to continue his baseball career at the University of Central Arkansas on Thursday afternoon oin front of family and friends, but there's something more impressive about this young man.
Cameron is a four-sport athlete for the Central Indians.
"I've played sports since I was born since my parents raised me," Cameron said. "My whole family played sports throughout my entire life and I've always been a huge competitor. I love to compete."
"It's a little bit more than a love," Central soccer coach Kane Brooner said It's a passion and you have to give him a lot of respect for that. You can't deny the presence he brings to your team, to the school, to his friends. He has an amazing gift of presence, on top of being athletic, that's just icing on the cake."
Noah is like a Swiss Army knife for Central. He was the punter this past season for the football team, a goal keeper for the soccer team, a sharp-shooting forward for the basketball team and, of course, his ultimate passion; a pitcher for the baseball team.
"I've know my whole life baseball is what I want to do. so it was just a dream come true today, hopefully further my career, make it a bigger dream and I've always loved being on the mound," Cameron said. "Nothing compares to that feeling when you're up on the mound in a game."
A four-sport star. Taking skills from all sports to make him a better athlete overall at the next level.
"Hand-eye coordination and speed and just anything," Cameron added. "Playing other sports has definitly helped."
"He trains different parts [of his body]," Central baseball coach Brent Seifert said. "He's a soccer player. He trains his foot eye coordination. I know he's a goalie. Baseball-wise it's hand eye. Basketball it could be he conditioning. football the physicallity, all those combinations is only going to help him."
