Josh Norman: Birth, Education & Career
Josh Ricardo Norman was born on December 15, 1987, in Greenwood, South Carolina. He went to Greenwood High School, where he began playing American football. Josh was a member of the school’s 2006 South Carolina State Championship team.
He was also named an All-State football player and was one of only a few players chosen to play in the North-South All-Star Game.
Josh Norman was named to the All-Lakeland Region 4A offense team, which adds to his already impressive resume. Aside from football, Josh also participated in baseball, basketball, and track events during his time at Greenwood High School.
Despite his decorated high school career, Josh did not receive any Division I scholarship offers, so after high school, he moved in with his brother Marrio Norman, who was also into football and had received a full football scholarship at Coastal Carolina.
He began taking classes at Horry Georgetown Tech to better himself while waiting for the right opportunity, and by 2008, he was offered a walk-on spot on the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers football team.
He played in twelve games as a freshman, starting seven of them. His first start came against North Carolina A&T, and he also had his first interception.
He would later record twenty-six solo tackles and thirty-five total tackles, ranking ninth on the team in tackles. Josh would later be ranked in the Big South after recording nine pass defenses and two interceptions.
He was named Big South Freshman of the Week for his seven tackles, one interception, and one pass defense. Coastal Carolina offered him a scholarship for his second year based on his previous achievements, and he did not disappoint.
He was named a third-team All-American by the Associated Press, as well as first-team All-Big South and a member of Sporting News’ “Fabulous Fifty” All-American team.
During his sophomore season, he also set a school record and was ranked second in the country with eight interceptions.
He was also third in interceptions per game, with 0.73. Josh went on to win both the Big South Defensive Player of the Week and the National Defensive Player of the Week.

Josh Norman was selected 143rd overall by the Carolina Panthers in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, becoming the third Carolina player to be drafted, following Tyler Thigpen in 2007 and Jerome Simpson the following year (2008).
During his rookie season, he played in sixteen games, starting twelve of them, and recorded his first career interception against the Chicago Bears. Josh finished his rookie season with 73 tackles, seven passes defensed, and one interception.
He didn’t have a particularly strong second season.

He was named First-Team All-Pro for the 2015 season and was ranked eleventh on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2016. The Franchise revoked Norman’s tag in April 2016 after the two parties were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract.
Josh became an unrestricted free agent as a result of this decision, and in the same month, he signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Washington Redskins.
Norman’s new contract made him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history at the time, surpassing Darrelle Revis’ $36 million contracts with the New York Jets in 2015. He started every game that season and finished with 67 tackles, nineteen passes, three interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
At the end of the season, he was voted the 59th best player in the NFL Top 100 Players of the Year by his peers (2017). Norman suffered an injury during a game against the Kansas City Chiefs that forced him to miss the rest of the season.
