WINDSOR- With Norwich newly reassigned from Class ‘B’ school play to Section IV Class ‘C’ divisional play for this year’s football season, the Norwich Purple Tornado varsity football team wasted no time in starting their season off on the right foot as the Purple gridiron gang scored 35 straight points to lead Norwich over Windsor 42-6 in a Section IV Class C divisional matchup.

Windsor- the 2019 Section IV Class C runners up were simply outmatched by the Tornado offensive play and it was clear from the jump that the catalyst for the Norwich offense was the play of senior quarterback Griffin Mills- as he recorded three of his four rushing touchdowns on the evening in the first half.

Mills kick-started the Tornado as a pair of TD runs that came within five minutes of each other, the first one a seven yard run at 9:24 and a 31 yard TD run at 4:29 in the first period set the Purple Tornado up for a 14-0 lead over the Black Knights.

“I don’t think it’s a secret that the quarterback position in our offense is really the key focal point” said Norwich Head Coach Mike Chrystie, “He knows teams are going to be focusing on him…he’s put his work in, he’s a senior leader this year he’s a senior captain and he knows we expect big things from him this year.”
