Congrats to Gamecocks Eric Norwood

USC LB Eric Norwood has been selected by the Walter Camp Football Foundation as a All-Amercian.

Great to see much deserved accolades coming Mr.Norwood's way.

He is the first player in school history to earn three straight first-team all-SEC honors and this recent award from the Walter Camp Foundation is icing on the cake.

For 2009,  Norwood is tied for third in the SEC with 7.0 sacks this season. He is tied for eighth in the league with 11.5 total tackles for loss. He also leads the team with two interceptions, has recovered a fumble, forced a fumble, leads the team with 11 quarterback hurries and has blocked three kicks. He is the school's all-time leader in career sacks (29.0) and tackles for loss (54.5) and was one of five finalists for the Butkus Award, which recognizes the nation's top linebacker.
