Gamecocks Eric Norwood Selected for Senior Bowl

Congrats to South Carolina linebacker Eric Norwood as he has officially accepted an invitation to the 2010 Senior Bowl.  The 2010 Senior Bowl will kick off on January 30th in Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

In addition to his All-American honors, Norwood was a first team All-SEC selection by both the AP and league’s coaches and a finalist for the Butkus and Lombardi Awards. Entering the Gamecocks’ bowl game Norwood is tied for third in the SEC with seven sacks and tied for eighth with 11.5 tackles for a loss. He has two interceptions on the season — one he returned for a touchdown — and leads the team with 11 quarterback hurries.
“I just want to go down there and show what I have done over the course of the last four years at South Carolina,” Norwood said. “I want to show that I can play each linebacker position effectively, whether it’s inside linebacker or outside linebacker; that I am the complete player, the total package.”
