His school’s top scorer since Jabari Parker (teammates for one season), Zack showed leadership qualities, maturity, toughness and polish also seen watching Jabari (Milwaukee Bucks).
Ballislife has followed the big-bodied lefty shooter from his grammar school days at Beasley Academic center, from his first games at Simeon on the sophomore team, to his final games his senior season in the Illinois state finals in Peoria. There is always a lot of attention placed on Simeon locally and nationally, as one of the leading
public league basketball powerhouses.
The players receive accolades but also face a great deal of scrutiny too. Zack rose to meet each challenge. Stats don’t always tell the story as Illinois high schools don’t use a shot clock and many teams, including Simeon play zone.
According to the Chicago Sun Times, Norvell averaged 18 points, eight rebounds and four assists his senior season, leading Simeon to a 30-4 record (Illinois 4A 3rd place) playing a national schedule. He always led Simeon down the stretch, making as many clutch shots as anyone in the Chicago area this high school season.
Check out this final high school mixtape covering Zack Norvell’s senior season at Simeon Career Academy as well as his earlier Ballislife mixtapes through the years (from 8th grade to 12th grade).
