Eric Norwood had a highlight reel career as an outside linebacker for South Carolina, so it’s not a surprise that less than a decade after finishing his time wearing the Garnet and Black, the 2009 First Team All-America and three-time All-SEC selection is being inducted into the University of South
Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame, sponsored by the Association of Lettermen, on September 21.
I realize he was undersized, but I can't believe, with his motor, he didn't really latch on to an NFL team at least as a backup and special teams guy. He got a cup of coffee with a few teams but to my knowledge that's about it. Man, it's tougher than people think to be a pro.
Some of his biggest highlights came against Kensucky. 😉
