Mariner Norton lets athletic actions speak loud and clear
While Oceanside senior's hearing limited, his amazing sports abilities are not

...He continued his torrid pace on the gridiron as a senior with a dream season, racking up 2,111 total yards (1,603 rushing, 242 receiving and 171 on special teams) and 30 touchdowns, while averaging 12.6 yards per carry.

He also had 94 tackles on defense and 10 sacks from the linebacker spot, earning him first-team all-conference honors at running back and linebacker.

“I’ve coached Michael since he was in seventh grade and he was special then and he is better now,” said Oceanside football coach Wes Drinkwater, who also is a middle school boys basketball coach. “He’s a competitor plain and simple and losing doesn’t sit well with him. Fortunately for him, from what I’ve seen, he hasn’t done much of it.”

Norton has a strong athletic pedigree. His father, Mike Sr., was a three-sport athlete and 1,000-point scorer for then Rockland District High School, while his mother, Heidi Peters, also was a standout athlete during her days at RDHS.

Now, Norton will prepare for his senior season on the hardwood, with sights set on a deep run in the regional tournament. ... ar/1709489
