Norman sets SEC Freshman Record

By Travis Young - With 5:34 left in the first quarter, Vanderbilt's Warren Norman returned a kick-off 23 yards to the VU 38-yard line, setting the SEC Freshman Record for All-Purpose Yards. Norman now has 1,825 all-purpose yards, passing Georgia's Herschel Walker's 29-year old mark of 1,805.

Two minutes later, on a third and three situation from the Tennessee 21-yard line, Norman scampered six-yards to get the first down and putting him all alone in the Vanderbilt school record books. With that six-yard run Norman passed Corey Harris' 18-year (1991) single season all-purpose yardage record of 1,827.

Norman now has 1,878 all purpose yards with nine minutes to go in the second quarter. The Stone Mountain, Ga. native, has 88 all-purpose yards (37 rushing, 16 receiving, 36 return) through a quarter and a half tonight.
