Noblesville Schools announced that they’ve named Hamilton Southeastern’s defensive coordinator Dave Sharpe as their new head varsity football coach. Sharpe will replace Justin Roden who recently announced he is leaving Noblesville High School to return to the Cincinnati area. The appointment was approved at the December 17, 2019 school board meeting.
Prior to his role at Hamilton Southeastern, Sharpe was the head coach at LaPorte High School where he brought the second smallest school in the Duneland Conference to a conference championship for the first time in school history. During his tenure at LaPorte, they had a winning record against all of their conference rivals; posting a 19 and 12 record.
Sharpe also won a state championship title at Jimtown High School in 2005 while serving as an assistant under his father, football legend Bill Sharpe.
“Coach Sharpe has a great football pedigree and 14 years of strong, successful coaching experience,” shared NHS Athletic Director Leah Wooldridge. “He knows we’ve been a team in transition and he’s committed to bringing stability and leadership to build our program. His focus on kids and his great football mind will be huge assets. I’m excited to see what we can accomplish together moving forward.”
Sharpe holds an education degree from Purdue University and will serve as a physical education teacher at Noblesville High School.
