Dec. 27, 2011
The Sports Network 2011 FCS All-American Team
CONWAY - Coastal Carolina cornerback Josh Norman has added two more All-American teams to his credit, being named to Phil Steele's first team and The Sports Network's second team.
Norman had previously been named to the 25-man American Football Coaches Association All-American team, while being named first team All-America by the Associated Press and CollegeSportsMadness.com.
Norman is a three-time, first team All-Big South selection and was a 2009 third team All-American after shattering a Big South single-season record and ranking second in the NCAA with eight interceptions.
This past season, Norman led the Chanticleers in tackles and led the Big South in both passes defended (1.27) and pass breakups (12). Nationally, his 12 PBU ranks sixth-best, while his 1.27 passes defended ranks 10th-best. The 12 PBU is a CCU single-season record and Norman's 49 solo tackles this past season ranks fifth on the CCU seasonal chart. He was a two-time Big South Defensive Player of the Week, helping Coastal Carolina defeat VMI and Presbyterian in the process.
