Ryan Norton thrives in simplified role of kickoff specialist

first_imgWhen Syracuse hosted Wake Forest on Sept. 12, Syracuse had seven kickoffs. Five of them were too deep in the end zone for the Demon Deacons to attempt a return. Of the first 33 kickoffs Norton had this season, 17 — more than half — went for touchbacks.“It’s kind of more natural for me to do kickoffs,” Norton said. “Since I started kicking when I was younger, (kickoffs) came more easily for me.”Norton, a senior who is 17-of-38 on touchbacks this season, has traded spots as a kickoff specialist and a field goal specialist during his time at Syracuse. When incumbent kicker Ross Krautman missed most of the 2013 season, Norton made 10 of his 15 field goal attempts at a position he didn’t expect to compete in. He came in as the field goal starter in 2014 before being unseated by freshman kicker Cole Murphy four games in.Now, Norton is back focusing solely on the position he feels most comfortable with. His leg is the strongest on the team but far from the most accurate. It’s what’s kept him from holding the field goal job down, but what’s also allowed him to thrive this season as a reliable kickoff specialist.“Ryan came in here with a strong leg, and he knew that there was a good chance that that could be his role coming into the season,” special teams coordinator Tim Daoust said. “That’s what he had done for us in the past and he’s back to his form from a couple years ago.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDaoust said Norton and Murphy came into training camp in competition for both facets of the kicking game, and the two separated from each other at each position. Still, they both work on the other’s craft at every practice.Murphy said the two critique each other at the other’s position. While the primary focus, Murphy said, is improving his own game, the two also make an effort to give each other pointers.“There’s a lot of the same things over and over,” Murphy said. “A lot of it’s mainly just keep your eyes back, swing straight through the ball, swing your target. Attack your plant foot. Don’t swing around, things like that. It’s little things.”In the training room, Norton said sometimes there are things he wants to fix or areas he wants to get stronger in. While others might be lifting weights, Norton will be doing one-legged squats, jumping, or working on other explosive leg movements. It’s important to have a strong core and lower body if you’re a kicker, Murphy said.Norton visualizes his kicks before they come. He tells himself that he knows he can do it. It’s what he works on all week for.When Syracuse played Pittsburgh on Saturday, Norton was instructed to kick it short with 25 seconds left in the first half. He didn’t place the ball where he wanted, and was eventually called for a late hit on a tackle to end the play.“You kick yourself,” Norton said of the mistake that eventually cost SU three points in a 23-20 loss.In his job, there’s only so many chances to execute. And in his job, there’s only so many definitions of success. For almost all of 2015, Norton has done the job that’s been asked of him.“At this level, everybody’s got a guy back there that can be a game changer,” Daoust said. “He’s at a much higher percentage than he’s had in the past … I know he’s doing a nice job with that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 30, 2015 at 1:49 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3last_img read more

No. 4 Syracuse set to face its Achilles Heel, Maryland

first_img Published on March 8, 2017 at 10:06 pm Contact Kaci: klwasile@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ Since 1998, Syracuse has faced Maryland a total of 21 times. The Orange has only won once.Recently, Maryland’s dominance has derailed SU in the postseason. The Terrapins beat Syracuse in the national championship in 2014, the only time the two teams have met in that game. In the 2013, 2015 and 2016 seasons, UMD eliminated SU from the semifinals.No. 4 Syracuse (7-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) will once again take the field against No. 1 Maryland (4-0) in College Park on Saturday. Since 2007, when Gary Gait took over as head coach, UMD has SU’s Achilles heel. The only time SU won was a road game in 2012.“We’re still the last team to beat them at home,” Gait said, “at Maryland a long time ago, five years.”That game occurred on March 10, 2012 — five years and one day before this Saturday’s meeting — with SU winning, 10-9. Then-junior Michelle Tumolo, led the team to victory with her five points on three goals and two assists, while then-sophomore goalie Alyssa Costantino registered 10 saves. Prior to the March 10 loss, Maryland last lost at home in May of 2008 to Duke.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It was a battle back and forth,” former Maryland midfielder and two-time Tewaaraton winner Katie Schwarzmann said. “They played us very well, their goalie came out with a lot of saves.”Syracuse and Maryland’s first matchup took place 19 years ago. The 1998 season brought the Orange to College Park, where they received their first of many losses against the Terps. Maryland head coach Cathy Reese was a player for Maryland at the time. Gait, one of Maryland’s assistant coaches at the time, recruited Reese. She was his first real blue chip recruit.Gait, one of the best players in Syracuse men’s lacrosse history, got his start at Maryland. He was on seven teams that won national championships. “I spent a lot of time there,” Gait said. “I loved my time there, I got involved in the game of women’s lacrosse. Lots of history, lots of tradition there. I certainly look forward to going back.”Maryland runs a fast-paced offense with multiple high scorers. Leading their offensive efforts this season is junior attack Megan Whittle. A Tewaaraton watch list member, Whittle played a crucial role in Maryland’s trouncing of SU. In last year’s semifinals, Whittle posted a game-high five points on four goals and one assist. Junior Taylor Hensh also posted four goals in that game. She returned this season with eight points over the first four games. Whittle leads the team with 11 goals. Senior midfielder Zoe Stukenberg is also on the Tewaaraton watch list this season and is tied for second with 10 goals.On defense, Maryland has senior Nadine Hadnagy. She caused two turnovers in the game against North Carolina on Feb. 25. The reigning National Champions North Carolina is a top caliber team and was ranked No. 1 going into the UMD game. Maryland kept the Tar Heels’ top scorer, Molly Hendrick, to one goal off five shots. Hendrick currently averages three goals per game. Her speed allows allows her to transition the ball quickly but SU runs a fast paced offense and could create opportunities to stop her.Maryland’s domination over Syracuse has put a damper on any achievements the team has. Many upperclassmen for the Orange have faced, and failed, against Maryland multiple times throughout their careers.“Having to say I’ve been here for four and a half years and I haven’t beaten Maryland is… it’s been a goal,” redshirt junior Taylor Gait said. “They’re a great team every year, they’re consistent. It would be amazing if we could come out with a W.” Commentslast_img read more
