Jordan Norris is one of the best defensive backs in D2 football right now. He currently ranks second in the division in interceptions with seven, one of which he returned for a touchdown. He’s also defended a total of 15 passes, making him become one of the most lethal weapons on the BR-147 Northwestern Oklahoma defense.
Those are the things we know from taking a look at his stats, but I wanted to get to know the real Jordan Norris. Take a look at some of these answers, would you have thought a guy as aggressive as he is playing defense would love the movie Titanic? I wouldn’t have, but it makes me an even bigger fan of him as a player. Check it out:
What’s your favorite part about Northwestern Oklahoma, the school and then the team/program?
My favorite part about Northwestern has to be the people. The people are all friendly and supportive with what we do and that’s pretty important coming from a big city to a little town. My favorite part about the team is just how everyone has a brotherly bond with each other.
What’s your favorite place to go eat in your college town?
I usually tend to make my way to Sonic almost everyday and eat there just because it’s one of maybe 10 places to eat in Alva, plus I could eat the cheeseburgers all day.
Do you have any game day or pregame rituals or routines?
One of my pregame rituals before every game is to play a couple games of NCAA 14 Football and just get my mind away from everything. On game day I’ll listen to a certain amount of songs in the same order every time.
What’s your favorite team bonding activity?
I think my favorite team bonding activity would be when we all get together and play basketball. Because it’s always fun to try and see guys who hit all day try to make a shot.
If you could be any position on offense, what would it be?
I would definitely be the quarterback. I love to have the ball in my hands and the attention on me so if I could do that almost every play that would be awesome.
What are your plans after football?
A: My plans after football is ya know obviously to try and continue to play football but if that fails my plan is to pursue a career in law enforcement. Maybe even coaching!
What’s the best meal you can make yourself?
A: The best meal I can make are these Chili dogs wrapped in foil cooked in the oven. The best thing ever invented.
What’s a skill or hobby you have outside of football?
A: I’ve got a number of skills but I think the most interesting one I have is being able to play the guitar and piano. It’s something I taught myself how to do and I was pretty proud being able to achieve that.
If you could play on any historical or NFL team, which would it be and why?
A: Without a doubt I would go play for the Dallas Cowboys. I mean that’s America’s team plus it’s in my hometown so I would love to be there!
Favorite romantic movie?
A: Titanic no doubt. It’s probably the only romantic/sad movie I could watch before a game.
Favorite TV show, and which character from it?
A: My favorite TV show would have to be Spongebob. Me, my niece, and grandma would watch it almost everyday before school so I got real familiar with it. Patrick would be my favorite character not just because he does some dumb things but because he’s hilarious.
If you could be any superhero who would you be and why?
A: I would be the Flash! Being able to run at lightning speed to anywhere in the world would definitely save me some gas money! Plus I would be unstoppable in football if they would even let me play!
