Playing football in the fall and baseball in the summer are a few things Noah Bruckner enjoys, as well as hanging out with friends. Bruckner’s parents are Gus and Alison and he has two older siblings, Haley and Jackson, and two younger sisters, Grace and Ava. Bruckner and his family moved to Atlantic four years ago and a few years later in February 2017, they opened up a coffee shop called Coffee 7.

One of Bruckner’s favorite high school memories was “beating Creston in football, 19-13, on Homecoming in 2017.” A moment he is proud of was when he won his first state championship in baseball at eight years old. After high school, Bruckner plans to continue his academic and football career at Simpson College. When he was younger he wanted to be a lawyer because “it sounded like fun to argue for other people.”

Bruckner’s grandma, Mary Jo, has been one of the most influential people in his life. “When my grandma passed away from cancer, it taught me to always stay happy and to cherish every moment with the people around you,” Bruckner said. He has used these lessons about always being happy in the classroom, the baseball diamond and on the football field. Bruckner said they will stick with him throughout college and beyond.
