Perps’ Noel Kampton commits to La Salle

The future is starting to look bright for De La Salle University. 

The Green Spikers have secured the commitment of one of the brightest young prospects today in Noel Kampton.

And the main reason he went to La Salle was his desire to be under coach Arnold Laniog, who is both an NCAA Men’s Volleyball and PVL champion mentor.

“Napili ko ‘yung La Salle kasi alam ko na they will help me to become a better player, lalo na nandiyan po si Coach Arnold — one of the best coaches sa men’s volleyball,” the 20-year-old outside hitter told Tiebreaker Times.

“Also siyempre, maganda ‘yung academics ng La Salle and they help student-athletes like me find balance.”

In his four-year stay in Perpetual, the 6-foot-2 spiker won three-NCAA Juniors Indoor Volleyball and one Beach Volleyball crowns. He also bagged the NCAA Season 94 Finals Most Valuable Player and was the Best Outside Spiker in Season 93.

In Season 95, the Junior Altas had a 5-1 slate. Unfortunatey, the tournament was then cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

At La Salle, he can’t wait to be under the tutelage of Laniog, whom he has known since his elementary days.

“Nung nasa Perpetual ako, nag-uusap na kami kung saan ako mag-college. Then one day, nabalitaan ko sa La Salle na siya. Natuwa ako, then sabi ko kay Coach Arnold, ‘Coach, tapusin ko lang po dito sa Perpetual then sa ‘yo na ‘ko pupunta.”

Having seen La Salle not make the Final Four for the last seven seasons, Kampton vows to give it his all to lead them to the semis.

“I want to bring La Salle back to the Final Four, so I will do my best.”
