Ean Norenberg Class of 2020 DE/TE 6'4 220 Stevenson
COACH BIG PETE'S TAKE
Very raw, but a growing frame and great vision on the sophomore level. Ean will be a player to look out for these next two years and see how much he progresses.
Ean Norenberg what schools have you been talking to?
The only schools that I have talked with are the schools that visited our school during workouts and such. I’m just getting started with the process.
What would you like college coaches to know about you?
Along with football, I wrestle. Both sports have taught me about hard work, dedication, teamwork, leadership, and how to deal with adversity. My ability to work hard is also demonstrated in my academic achievements as I am a member of NHS with a GPA of over 4.5. I am confident that strong desire to challenge myself will lead to future successes.
Favorite memory from last season?
Without a doubt, the moment that our kicker kicked the winning field goal against Warren to seal the deal of going 9-0. It was incredible to look back on how we began summer camp being a fragmented team with negative thoughts of the previous season’s losses and how we transformed into a rock solid, undefeated team, a band of brothers.
What do you like about playing on the defensive line?
On offense, you know the play, you know where it’s going. On defense, you have to be able to read the developing action on every down. Additionally, while you need to be aggressive on both sides of the ball, I feel that defense requires an almost violent level of aggressiveness which I have come to really enjoy.
Name me a Stevenson player that should be getting more looks from college coaches?
This question is pretty tough considering the amount of talent on our team but to name one, Rishik Kancharla. He’s got great speed, route running, hands, and attitude.
What goal do you have for yourself this season?
I want this to be my best season ever. I will work with the coaches to create position specific goals for both DE and TE. Ultimately, I want to do whatever I can to help this team win the state championship.
How has wrestling helped on the football field?
Wrestling is a very tough sport. Not only is it a team sport, but it is an individual sport. A wrestler deals with losing alone, pushing through long, difficult workouts, weight management, and mental strain. As the great wrestler Dan Gable said, “Once you‘ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.” I look forward to benefiting from my time on the mat in all areas of my life.
