Jordan Norwood’s Super Journey

It’s cliché to say that an athlete’s career seems like it was ripped from a movie, but in the case of Jordan Norwood ’08, his career has followed a very Hollywood-esque path.

Norwood was a lightly-recruited kid out of high school who went to his local college and eventually turned into one of the best receivers in school history. He then went unselected in the NFL Draft, and for his career, Norwood has been cut/waived more times (5) than he has found the end zone (once in 2011).

But Norwood kept persevering, and on Sunday night, we were all reminded of the dynamic player who suited up for the Nittany Lions from 2005 to 2008. Norwood set the Super Bowl record for the longest punt return with his 61-yard effort against Carolina. And of course, when the game was over, Norwood won his first Lombardi Trophy.

So from all of us at The Penn Stater, congratulations, Jordan. Here’s to hoping there are many more Super Bowls in your future.
