Senior Charles Norris, #66 on SBHS Football team.

Football is not a sport for everyone, but for Charles Norris, a senior at SBHS, football is everything.

“Honestly, if football was a person, that person would be like my best friend to me.”

Jersey number 66 is how you would find Norris on the field making key blocks for the ball carriers.
You may also see him around school with a cast covering his left forearm and hand.

Well, here’s his story behind it:
At first he didn’t feel anything with the adrenaline running through his body. After not being able to squeeze a water bottle or completely straighten his hand, Norris knew something wasn’t right.
“When I realized something was wrong, I went and had Aaron wrap my hand up ‘cause I wanted to keep playing.”
The pain treacherously grew play after play but his pride and passion for football finished the game for him.
Visiting the doctor a few days later, Norris was astonished to find out he would need surgery and an insert of three screws which would be in his hand forever. He misses his team and playing football more than anything right now.

Then there’s Keiran Bellamy, also known as “Phili.” He knew that one day he too would get hurt and eventually have to sit out from the game.
Phili really didn’t expect to get injured his senior year of high school. He was number 75 on the field and the tall dude with an afro around school.
After missing half the season, and crutching his way around for three weeks with a brace around his leg, “Phili” was in for one or two weeks of therapy before he could return to being a SBHS football player.
“I miss putting on the pads, helping the team, and experiencing the good stuff.” Says Phili.

But these injuries will not stop “Phili” or Norris, if anything it makes them better than they were the day before. It does not end here, this is just the beginning.
