Frontier’s Noah Buffalohead – Basketball Spotlight -Presented by Phillips 66 Ponca City

There are things that happen in life that we may not understand why it is happening. But when we are faced with these situations, we have to decide if we want to let them keep us down or if we are going to work to make it a positive. Noah Buffalohead faced something he did not expect earlier this year. He says that while it was a tough time, he strives to do his best in it.

“My older brother, Aaden Buffalohead, passed away in April,” Noah recalled. He was my day one and I miss him everyday. He had a huge impact on my life, he pushed me to go harder, and never give up. When I was at my lowest he was always there. That motivates me everyday to keep going.”

Noah is a senior at Frontier High School. He is a member of the basketball, golf, and track teams. He also helps with the Special Olympics and he is the assistant coach for the fifth and sixth grade basketball team.

When competition time comes, Noah says that he is proud to be able to represent the school and community.


 “Every time I step on the court is a blessing,” he said. “I am proud to wear the Mustang uniform. Hopefully our team can get a state championship this season.”

Throughout his athletic career, Buffalohead has made a lot of memories. But he says that there are a few that stand out as his favorites.

“I love being able to play in front of my grandma,” he said. “Also, traveling to Washington and Arizona for basketball was really fun too.”

There have been a few people that Noah has looked up to as role models for his life.

“My mom and Mrs. Pemberton has both been important in my life. I don’t think I would be where I am today without them.”
