Norwood is the man. This is one of 'Sips boys from MS!! C'mon, 'Sip!! Show your boy some love!!
Kevin comes through every time he's given the opportunity to do so. It's amazing to me that we don't go to him more.
But you better believe when a championship or huge game is on the line he suddenly becomes "The Guy".
People don't realize how big and fast he is and I think he'll be playing football for quite a few years.
I've known him for some time now and he is a fine young man and a champion. You GO Kevin!!!!!
Guess who the state 200 meters champion was his senior year in high school? Yep...
Kevin can fly..deceptively so but fly just the same.
The first time I ever heard about Kevin was when his high school coach, Buddy Singleton told me, "I coached Reggie Collier in high school
and I've got a kid who's a better athlete than he was". That speaks volumes because Coach Bryant once called Collier "A man among boys" after USM beat us 38-29 in Tuscaloosa.
When I asked Coach Singleton, "How good is he as a receiver?" he replied, "All I know is if the ball's anywhere in his area he's gonna catch it". Quite prophetic huh?
Coach Singleton also said, "He really ought to play safety in college but he's not going anywhere that doesn't play him at wide receiver".
He based that opinion on the fact that Kevin intercepted twelve passes his senior year. Not bad.
I'm just glad he's getting some recognition.
By the way Kevin was pretty much headed for either USM or Ole Miss. Then one day Coach Saban called Coach Singleton and said that he was in the area and wanted to meet Kevin personally. Coach Singleton called Kevin to his office, Coach Saban walked in, shook hands, talked to Kevin for ten minutes, drove with him to meet his family and left with a commitment.
Quite the recruiter he is. sip
Norwood is clutch for sure, definitely one of my favorite players...always shows up. The guy just makes plays.
He has mastered that catch to the outside, leaning out of bounds and always makes sure he looks the ball in, and gets his feet in-bounds. Makes for some beautiful catches...just awesome.
After rewatching that last AMAZING, WONDERFUL drive (Sorry still just spell bound by it) I noticed that had Norwood not gotten tripped up (good no call by the way) he was in perfect position for the catch. Can you imagine had that been the play to end the drive! AJ to KN 4-4. And TJ's pass protection was amazing the whole drive! Consider I believe that, that next to last play was not designed to go into the back of the endzone. AJ and KN adjusted on the play after it broke down. (I think)
