“He was huge for us after Cole VanKirk went down in week five and I was impressed how he ran tougher every single week.
“I joked all year about him having to play like a senior instead of a sophomore, and he responded by turning into the kind of back that other teams needed to game plan for instead of being just another guy with a football in his hands.”
Norman earned second-team honors on offense at utility back and on defense as a linebacker.
He completed 20 of 53 passes for 244 yards while rushing for 179 yards on 25 totes. He also caught 18 passes for 324 yards and eight touchdowns.
Defensively, Norman led the Warriors with 57 tackles and tied with VanKirk in team-leading interceptions with three. He also recovered two fumbles.
“I can’t say enough about Bradley Norman on either side of the ball,” Horton said. “He played every position on the field for us this year but kicker.
“Whatever needed to be done, he jumped in and did it well. He’s the kind of man that every football team has to have, the guy who just says ‘OK, let’s do it’ and then does it.
“As a senior in the midst of a tough season it’s easy to mentally quit knowing you might not be around to reap the benefits of the growth of the younger guys, but he was as committed a teammate as any of them will ever have and I was proud to see that the other coaches recognized that in him as well.”
