In 2009, Norwood became first South Carolina player to be named a First-Team All-American since 1984, after a senior campaign in which he was one of five finalists for the Butkus Award...Named an All-SEC First Teamer three straight years (2007-2009) by the league coaches...First-Team Freshman All-American and All-SEC in 2006 when he tied for the team lead with seven sacks and was third on the Gamecocks with nine tackles for loss, making quite an impression and setting the bar rather high in his first year of college ball...Norwood is South Carolina's all-time leader in both sacks (29.0) and tackles for loss(54.5) as someone who began his career as a defensive end before moving to linebacker for the 2008 campaign...A tenacious defender who always seems to be around the ball, Norwood's choice to return to school for his senior season only enhanced his prospects in the draft.
