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.”
