Delaware Valley defensive lineman Michael Nobile is part of the 2021 College Football America Yearbook’s Division III Preseason Starting Lineup, the book’s version of a preseason All-America team.
Just as importantly, the Aggies are No. 10 in the 2021 College Football America Yearbook’s Division III Preseason Top 30.
The Aggies did not play a game in 2020 due to COVID-19.
Nobile has played just two seasons for the Aggies, but he’s emerged as an immediate impact player. In 2019, Nobile was a First-Team All-American, the NCAA tackle for loss leader, the NCAA East Region Defensive Player of the Year and the Middle Atlantic Conference Defensive Player of the Year. In 2018, as a freshman, Nobile was the MAC Rookie of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year.
Delaware Valley opens the 2021 season at Kean on Sept. 3. The Aggies open the home portion of their schedule on Sept. 11 against Montclair State.
