The Coconino County Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that Noshi, 22, died July 7 in his Flagstaff home of “acute fentanyl intoxication with ethanol use and recent cocaine use.” His death was ruled an accident, according to spokeswoman Trish Lees.
Flagstaff police have said that a 911 call about noon that day came in requesting medical attention for Noshi, who was not breathing. Medics responded to Noshi’s home and performed “life-saving measures,” but Noshi was pronounced dead at 12:10 p.m.
At the time of his death, Noshi was a senior and starting offensive lineman, wearing jersey No. 65, for the Northern Arizona University Lumberjacks. He was recognized last year as a Big Sky Honorable Mention, according to his bio page on the university’s website.
A Las Vegas native, Noshi sported No. 55 and earned all-state, all-city and all-conference honors while playing on the offensive line for the Arbor View Aggies. He was a member of the first Arbor View football team to go undefeated.
