Kyle Norton is an explosive player who is at his best in the open court attacking the rim. Last year, as a freshman on JV, Kyle led the team in offensive charges where he had an unique ability to take on ball charges. Kyle has been impressive early in preseason with his athleticism and ability to knock down the 3 point shot. The Tigers will look for Kyle to make an impact off the bench this season.
Best Trait at BHS: The best trait of Biddeford high school is probably how much pride each and every person has and how much each person cares for each other and helps each other out when something goes wrong.
Ten years from now… I see myself in college truth to get a degree in engineering or drafting and playing basketball in my free time for either the school or just for fun with random clinics.
