"[Norman] was a starting wide receiver and kick returner for the Bulldogs three seasons (1982-85). He set then-school record for receptions in a game (9), season (45) - both coming in 1985 - and a career (75), 1984-85. A Lincolnton, Ga., native, he earned All-MEAC first team honors as a kick returner in 1984 and was a second-team All-MEAC selection as a wide receiver in 1985. Norman, MVP in the Coca-Cola Black College All-Star Classic in 1985, played three seasons (1985-87) as a wide receiver with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League. He coached football, baseball and basketball on the high school level for 16 years."
