Noah Gindorff (born February 12, 1999) is an American football tight end who is a free agent. He played college football at North Dakota State.

Early life and high school

Gindorff grew up in Crosby, Minnesota and attended Crosby-Ironton Secondary School.[1] He played quarterback, tight end, defensive line, linebacker, safety, kicker, and holder on the football team, which was coached by his father. During Gindorff's high school career he passed for 2,822 yards and 28 touchdowns and also rushed for 3,318 yards and 43 touchdowns.[2]

College career

Gindorff redshirted his true freshman season at North Dakota State (NDSU). He played in 12 of the Bison's 15 games, mostly on special teams, during his redshirt freshman season.[3] Gindorff was named second team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference (MVFC) after catching 11 passes for 85 yards and three touchdowns during his redshirt junior season, which was shortened and played in the spring of 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States.[4] He had 17 receptions for 193 yards and two touchdowns in the first 12 games of his redshirt senior season before suffering a season-ending injury.[5] Gindorff decided to utilize the extra year of eligibility granted due to the coronavirus pandemic to college athletes who played in the 2020 season and returned to NDSU for a sixth season.[6] He caught six passes for 74 yards and one touchdown in the first three games of his final season before suffering a season-ending ankle injury.[7][8]
