One of the more versatile recruits in Tech’s 2009 recruiting class, Hermitage (Richmond, VA) star Theron Norman showed off his toughness as a senior, playing through a hamstring injury in helping the Panthers to a district championship. The 6-3, 192-pound prospect, a potential free safety or wide receiver on the next level, took time for a “Postseason Q&A” to discuss this past season and much more.
Norman, who joins teammate Duan Perez-Means, a 6-4, 235-pound DE/LB/TE, as part of Tech’s 2009 class. He saw action at wide receiver, free safety and quarterback in his senior season.
Norman says he is “all straight” in terms of qualifying.
Q&A with Theron Norman
TSL: What have you been up to since football season ended?
Theron Norman : “I’ve been lifting and running. I also went to physical therapy for my hamstring.”
TSL: During the season, did you know you would have to have physical therapy after the season?
Theron Norman : “During the season, the trainer said I should go to a doctor after the season and get it worked on.”
TSL: How do you feel about your senior season performance, especially in light of the injury?
Theron Norman : “As far as playing with the injury, I think I did okay. I was just on one leg, but I focused on staying in position and making sure everything went to plan for our team. It was tough playing the entire year on just one leg, especially since I was a captain.”
TSL: Did you learn anything about yourself with the way you played through the injury?
Theron Norman : “I think of myself as a positive person anyway. The coaches said I had a positive attitude despite going through what I was going through. They told me I showed a lot of character. I gave it all even though I was hurt, but that is the way I am.”
