See also

Noah Backtalk of the Vancouver Murder finished 5th overall in the all-star voting for British Columbia in 2013, giving him a spot in the "starting lineup." Noah also finished in 5th place in the MVP voting. Here is what some of the voters had to say about him...

"Hands down. The best coach I have ever had. Noah is calm, strategic, and inspirational. He leads by example. He drafts based not only on skater talent but on heart. Every skater that I've met who has been coached by him is energized by him and falls in love with the sport a little more because of him." - Francesca Fiure

"Noah is a quadruple threat in this sport; a great coach, skater, referee and person. Without him and his efforts to bring Men’s derby to the area I wouldn’t have had all the opportunities I have enjoyed. Noah never gives you more than you can handle but pushes you harder than you thought you could take.” - Iron Fist

“Noah is the perfect coach. He has spent years as a roller derby ref and a player, which allows him to teach from experience. His coaching style is gentle yet he command respect. He give amazing feedback and is always willing to help a player achieve their goals. On the bench he is calm and collected and always giving out positive reinforcement, constructive criticism, and bottomless high fives.” - Mala Justed

"Core of the Vancouver Murder, Noah/Jeff always delivers on the track and develops strategy (and skaters) off the track." - Mack the Mouth
