Back in 2018, when he was roaming the secondary in his final season at Edison, Noah Stansbury led the entire state in interceptions as he paced the Eagles to their best season since Y2K.
That team’s eight-win campaign – highlighted by a first-round playoff victory – set the tone for Edison’s recent success, including last year’s 4-2 record in the shortened season.
Fast forward, and Stansbury is playing at a new level of football yet making the same impact.
The Edison native has earned the starting free safety job at New Hampshire, where he has helped guide the Wildcats to their first 3-0 start in 12 years.
Playing in his redshirt freshman season, Stansbury has recorded 15 tackles, two interceptions, and two pass breakups, all of which ranks among the team’s leaders.
This weekend, Stansbury and New Hampshire prepare for their biggest test of the fall, going on the road for an FBS/FCS battle with Pittsburgh at the home of the Steelers, Heinz Field.
Dom Savino caught up with Stansbury to chat about New Hampshire’s undefeated start, Stansbury’s time at Edison, and more.
