Norman is BACK!

Mizzou Softball has added to their coaching staff, and it includes a former Tiger. Welcome back to the program, Madi Norman (AKA Stormin’ Norman). The team has hired the former pitcher as a volunteer assistant, according to a press release on MUTigers.com Thursday afternoon.

From Larissa Anderson, via MUTigers.com.

“Madi Norman is a Mizzou Tiger through and through, and since her graduation in 2019 she has given back to the softball community while staying connected and passionately devoted to her alma mater. Madi was not only an outstanding player here at Mizzou who won us a lot of ball games, but more importantly she was a tremendous role model, a true ambassador to our progam.”

“She will continue to be that role model as a member of our coaching staff. She has tremendous ties to the youth softball community, the Columbia area and especially our alumni. She brings in a wealth of knowledge and experience as to what it means to be a Mizzou Tiger.”

And from Madi Norman herself:

“I am exremely honored for Coach Anderson to allow me this opportunity. I have come full circle and I’m happy to be home again at Mizzou. It’s a dream come true to coach with this staff and this school.”

And here’s a big honor for a recent Mizzou Football 2022 commit. Four-star running back from El Paso, Texas, Tavorus Jones — has been invited to the 2022 Polynesian Bowl All-Star Game, which features the world’s top high school football players, that will be gathered in Hawaii.

The game can be seen on January 22nd on the CBS Sports Network in O’ahu. Congrats, Tavorus! M-I-Z!
