MINT HILL, NC – The versatile junior continues to produce and improve for the Rocky River Ravens. He is having himself an excellent and consistent season 7 games into the 2021-22 football campaign.

Norris against a solid football team in the Butler Bulldogs had a total of 124 all-purpose  yards, including another 95 yards on 2 punt returns providing the offense with good field position. He accumulated 95 yards on 5 kickoff returns, another 28 yards on 3 pass receptions, and 1 yard rushing with only a single opportunity totaling 124 yards. He averaged 19.0 yards on the kickoff returns, and his longest pass reception was for 24 yards. Then add 95 yards on 2 punt returns and we can obtain a better understanding of the value Norris brings to the Rocky River football team. He is certainly a key ingredient in the game plan if the Ravens are going to have success between the goalposts.

Norris has speed, is athletic, with good hands, and is a threat anytime he is on the football field. Coach Orlando Gray called it early in the season when he said, “keep a watchful eye on Antwione Norris.” The good news for the Ravens is Norris has another season of eligibility. He will graduate in 2023, so we will see him again next year.

Therefore, based on the team stats for 6 games played he has accumulated 65 rushing yards on 12 carries, his longest rush from scrimmage is a 19 yarder, with 1 TD. In pass receiving he has 17 receptions for 281 yards, averaging 16.5 yards per catch, with a 63 yard reception being his longest, including 1 TD. All-Purpose yards total 474 yards entering Friday nights game, add another 124 and he now has a grand total of 598 yards with 3 games remaining.

The sports writers and reporters at the Mint Hill Times would like to congratulate Antwione Norris once again for being selected this weeks Player Of The Week.
