Former Orem High Star Discusses Possibility Of Playing With Big Brother In Detroit

Mar 2, 2023, 11:22 AM

SALT LAKE CITY – Former Orem High standout Noah Sewell discussed the possibility of teaming up with his big brother, Penei, at the next level with the Detroit Lions.

Sewell talked about his chances of landing with the Lions during a media session at the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine.

“If I get to play with my brother, it would be truly a blessing,” the NFL Draft prospect said of possibly getting selected by the Lions. “You’ve never heard really two brothers on the same team at once but yeah it would be a blessing.”

The former Tiger and Oregon Ducks linebacker will look to follow in the footsteps of his brothers, Gabe, Nephi, and Penei, who all play professional football. Penei (Lions) and Nephi (New Orleans Saints) both play in the NFL. Gabe is a member of the USFL’s Philadelphia Stars.

Penei was selected by the Lions with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Since then, he’s become one of the league’s premier offensive linemen.

Sewell declared for the NFL Draft in December 2022. He is currently in Indianapolis, Indiana to participate in the league’s Combine.
