MINT HILL, NC – This weeks outstanding player on the gridiron is Rocky River wide receiver and all-purpose yardage specialist Antwione Norris. The junior is a budding star, and seems to get better with every game he plays for the high flying Ravens who have outscored their opponents 82-14 in the past two football games improving their record to 2-3.

Norris has been a big part of the offense and team turnaround. He has clearly become QB Khalil Archie’s favorite target making the Ravens playmaker an athlete to watch throughout the remainder of this season. Also, he has become a threat on kickoff returns showing good speed, and excellent field vision locating seams, gaps, and open running lanes for big yardage. With huge upcoming Southwestern 4A Conference games on the schedule against Butler, Providence, and Independence the Ravens will need the same kind of performance from the youngster going forward.

Norris caught 5 passes for a total of 144 yards, for an average of 28.8 yards per reception, 63 yards was his longest reception along with one touchdown. He also added 33 yards on an excellent and exciting kick-off return and had one carry on the ground for another 7-yard pick-up. Overall, he had a total of 184 all-purpose yardages for the Ravens on Friday night against East Mecklenburg.

On the season to date unofficially Norris has over 50 rushing yards, 300 plus receiving yards, and 130 plus yards on kickoff returns for a total well over 400 all-purpose yards.

The sportswriters at The Mint Hill Times want to congratulate Antwione Norris for being selected this week’s Player Of The Week.
