Almost lost in Orem’s 21-7 championship win on Friday was Noah Sewell wearing a special set of gloves revealing his commitment decision.
SALT LAKE CITY — Commitment announcements have become creative over the years, with the state of Utah’s top prospect writing somewhat of a new chapter.
During postgame interviews following Orem’s 21-7 win over Timpview in the 5A state championship, Noah Sewell was asked what it read on his gloves.

Sewell rested on the Ducks just prior to the championship game after “doing a lot of praying and soul-searching. I talked to my parents and then just came up with the decision.”
Those same parents took part in the postgame celebration, with Noah’s mother, Arlene, running to midfield to engage her son in a long and emotional embrace following the game.
