Zack Norvell, Jr. had as big a freshman season at Chicago basketball powerhouse Simeon Career Academy as anyone could imagine. Last season (as an 8th grader) Norvell led Beasley Elementary to a 8th Grade City Championship (watch Ballislife video). This season, Norvell led Simeon's Sophomore squad to an impressive undefeated season, culminating in the Chicago City Title. Once the Sophomore season ended, Norvell re-joined the Varsity squad, coming off the bench to help the Simeon Wolverines win their fourth consecutive Illinois 4A State Championship. In the Argo sectional playoff game, Norvell scored 7 points to help eliminate Dusable HS, ending Dusable's Cinderella season. What made it personal is Dusable is coached by Zach's dad, Zack Norvell, Sr.!
The 6'4 Class of 2016 Guard is already catching the attention of high-major coaches with his long-range shooting, competitive nature, court vision and scoring abilities.
Here are some Zack Norvell basketball highlights from Chicago public school Simeon Career Academy's Sophomore and Varsity seasons. Thanks to Coaches Smith and Duncan and everyone at Simeon!
