After spinal injury to Norton, Luther College community bonds

first_img No. 17 Arkansas at No. 18 South Carolina Prediction: South Carolina 23, Arkansas 14 In a battle of conference foes, the Gamecocks will come out best in this fight. South Carolina’s road ahead will start at home against the Razorbacks. Published on November 3, 2010 at 12:00 pm Comments The play happened so fast, many of Chris Norton’s teammates missed it. It started when Norton, a freshman special teams player, took the field for a kickoff. He lined up while his team, Division III Luther College, was losing to Central College. The play ended with a call for an ambulance and Norton staying on the field. Jordan Grimm, a senior and the Norse’s linebacker and placekicker, didn’t even notice Norton was down at first. But then to Grimm, it quickly became clear that something felt wrong. It took a long time to get Norton off the field. After that, the team felt distracted, Grimm said. ‘It was kind of just really tough,’ Grimm said. ‘We were supposed to go out and play right after that. It kind of went downhill from there.’ Luther lost that Oct. 16 game to No. 15 Central, 45-26. The ambulance that carried Norton went to Decorah Medical Center in Decorah, Iowa. Doctors diagnosed him with a neck and spinal cord injury. Because of the injury’s severity, a helicopter took Norton to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., where he required a three-hour surgery. Since Norton’s injury, the team and local community around Luther have responded to his loss, as Norton began the road to recovery. Right after the game, head coach Mike Durnin addressed the team. He told them the news and told them they would have to keep going.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘Keep your prayers and thoughts with Chris and his family,’ Durnin told the team. In the weeks that followed, a local Decorah church held a service for Norton. Another service took place in his hometown. Luther established a fund for parents to donate to his recovery fund. ‘This has definitely been a case of the greatest of human nature standing up and supporting each other,’ Durnin said this week. As the Luther community tried to rally, so did Norton, with the help of a few others. Durnin and his wife went to the Mayo Clinic, as did Luther President Richard Torgerson and his wife. When Norton’s family finally arrived, they spotted a man wearing Luther gear, who was neither Durnin nor Torgerson. Just a Luther alumnus who went to the Oct. 16 game, saw Norton’s injury and wanted to offer his family a place to stay. A neurosurgeon called the Norton family into a small, dim room and told them to expect a long surgery, probably eight to 10 hours, said Norton’s sister, Alex. ‘The other thing is, do not expect he will have any movement from the neck down,’ the surgeon told the family, Alex said. The surgery took just three hours. After that, Alex began a blog about him and his road to recovery. She linked a donation fund to the blog so readers could contribute after they read about Norton. ‘It was a way everyone could see the information,’ she said. ‘That day of the accident and the day after, we couldn’t keep up. We were getting phone calls, texts. It was overwhelming. We kind of set up the site so people could keep up.’ Soon after the site went live, Norton wiggled his shoulders. As the team moves forward, the squad continues to feel Norton’s spirit. The team receives updates on his condition often. Luther (4-4) will face two more opponents before the end of the season. And while keeping the game in perspective, Luther’s players want to win for Norton.   ‘We’ve got a renewed sense of passion for the game, passion for life, knowing that every play could be our last,’ Grimm said. ‘Every day could be our last, you never know what life is going to throw at you.’ Grimm admits he thinks about Norton’s accident often. He tries to put it out of his mind when he approaches a kickoff. ‘It’s scary, it’s definitely scary,’ Grimm said. He tells himself that the odds are too small. That Norton just suffered a strike of bad luck. ‘It’s given us inspiration to play for Chris and to give yourself to something bigger than yourself,’ Grimm said. As for Norton, he continues to defy the first prognosis. Sensation continues to return to his body. Hopefully he can make a recovery and return to campus as a student next semester, his sister said. Each day, Norton undergoes physical therapy. His father has taken over blogging duties. On Tuesday, while in a wheelchair, therapists attached Chris’ legs to a stationary bike. The bike is powered by electricity and the motion helps rebuild Norton’s leg muscles. His father wrote, ‘I know the look he had on his face, it was his game face. He was ready to go.’ Games of the Week Louisville at Syracuse Prediction: Syracuse 30, Louisville 24 Last time the Cardinals came to the Carrier Dome in 2008, Syracuse came out on top 28-21. With the Orange winning five of its last six games, this year should be much the same. Syracuse gets its seventh win of the season and becomes bowl-eligible. No. 4 TCU at No. 6 Utah Prediction: Utah 32, TCU 28 In the week’s best matchup, the unbeaten Horned Frogs will journey to Salt Lake City to take on the unbeaten Utes. Last season, the Frogs demolished Utah 55-28. But the Frogs have lost the last two games at Salt Lake City. Look for Utah to continue the trend this week. No. 13 Arizona at No. 10 Stanford Prediction: Stanford 20, Arizona 17 Look for offense to topple defense. Stanford brings in a great offensive package, led by quarterback Andrew Luck. The Wildcats boast a No. 10-ranked defense, but luck should hold out for Stanford. No. 5 Alabama at No. 12 LSU Prediction: Alabama 30, LSU 14 Alabama rules over this series, 45-23-5. Expect that again this week. Alabama brings quarterback Greg McElroy to try and beat the Tigers. Even at home, LSU will not last past the Tide.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

FIGHTING BACK: After slow start, Syracuse’s offense breaks out in 13-12 win over Cornell

first_img Published on April 10, 2013 at 8:29 pm Contact Jacob: | @Jacob_Klinger_ Connor Buczek buried Cornell’s fourth goal just more than five minutes into Wednesday night’s game.He shot from 15 yards away, right between the hashes. But two hours later, in the exact same spot, his teammates were left desperately leaping for a Brian Megill clear they never caught. Dylan Donahue did, though, and time expired five seconds later.Syracuse beat No. 2 Cornell 13-12 on Wednesday night in the Carrier Dome in front of an emotional and sharply divided 3,862 fans that included about 100 Cornell students and a traveling pep band. The No. 7 Orange stormed back from an early 4-0 gap, stifling the Big Red’s (10-2, 4-0 Ivy) high-powered offense and tearing into the visitors with its seemingly overpowering first midfield. The SU (8-2, 2-1 Big East) comeback set up a chaotic final two minutes when the Orange held onto its lead by a mere bounce off of the crossbar.“This is why you go to Cornell,” Big Red attack Rob Pannell said, “for an Upstate battle against Syracuse. There’s nothing like it.”For the opening five minutes, though, there was no battle. Doug Tesoriero won every faceoff and every ground ball. Cornell started picking apart the Orange.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Cornell players were everywhere, popping up for goals from either side of Dominic Lamolinara’s cage.“We were just on the sideline trying to keep our legs warm, trying to cheer on our defense,” Syracuse midfielder JoJo Marasco said. “… And we tell each other on the sideline to, ‘When you get the ball, go to the net and try and win this game.’”It’s exactly how Henry Schoonmaker gave SU its first lead. With 6:15 remaining, he darted away from his man 20 yards from goal on the left hash marks and bounced the ball in before Cornell defender Jason Noble could even turn and help his burnt teammate.When SU awoke, the game fell into a duel of first midfield units. And with Megill frustrating Cornell’s leading assist man Pannell, the Big Red offense slowed down while Syracuse’s ran wild.“They’re athletic, they’re big, they play with both hands, they shoot the ball extremely well and they put a lot of pressure on defenses,” Cornell head coach Ben DeLuca said of SU’s midfield. “We didn’t respond the way we would’ve liked.”Pannell assisted on three of the Big Red’s first four goals. He didn’t have a single point in the last 54 minutes. Cornell scored six goals in the first quarter. It scored six goals the rest of the game.By the middle of the third quarter, momentum was building steadily for SU. Cornell led by just one.Syracuse scored 11 of its 13 goals with the first midfield line on. Kevin Rice scored one of the only goals without SU’s top midfielders with 5:10 remaining off of a defense-splitting, 20-yard diagonal cross from Ryan Barber that found Rice alone on the right side of the crease.With 27.1 seconds left in the game, SU led 13-12. The Syracuse players were divided into two huddles.In the larger huddle, on the right of the SU sideline, assistant coach Lelan Rogers and head coach John Desko warned their players of a play drawn up for Connor English.In the smaller huddle on the left, assistant coach Kevin Donahue simply told the attackers to kill off the clock if they got the ball.Out of the timeout, English beat Matt Pratt down the right hash marks and ran at Lamolinara wide open. Lamolinara came out, but English looped his shot over him.“I heard it hit something, so hopefully it was the pipe, but I didn’t know where it went, so that was really my big fear,” Lamolinara said. “I didn’t know if it bounced out front or behind.”The ball bounced inches beyond the crease. Steve Ianzito recovered and sprinted to the back of the SU defensive end zone before chucking it to Megill. The defender whipped the ball 50 yards downfield for Donahue to catch right where Buczek scored, and for Billy Ward to run toward the opposite end zone as the last five seconds ticked off of the clock as the Orange bench poured onto the field.Afterward, Megill said he was deaf to the electric atmosphere in the stands. He could only hear his teammates for most of the game.“But when you hear that sound, one minute remaining, and the Dome just erupts,” Megill said. “You feel it in your body.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
