34 DAYS TO KICKOFF: Aaron Norris


#34 Aaron Norris
Redshirt Freshman
6-0 | 231
Littleton, Colo.


Position: Fullback

Previous College: None

Projection: Scout Team

Status: Walk-On

Aaron James Norris (b. Feb. 13, 1993) is a walk-on fullback from Littleton, Colo.

The bulk of his high school experience appears to be on the defensive side, though. Given that fullback is a physical position and one that might take him time to learn, Norris redshirted in 2011 to add weight and learn the ropes.

I also like reading that he lettered three years in wrestling, won a regional championship in 2010 and was first-team all-conference in the sport in early 2011. Wrestlers make bad-ass football players, in my humble opinion.

Norris will be part of the scout team this year, and perhaps special teams as well, but his time is coming. We graduate two senior fullbacks this year, and that leaves Norris and Glenn Gronkowski to vie for the position in 2013.
