A vikings draft

   Norland was the most represented Miami-Dade County school at this year's NFL
Draft when the Vikings had three former players drafted in the top four rounds.

   LSU wide receiver Dwayne Bowe headlined the group, chosen in the first round
with the 23rd overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs.

   Linebacker Antwan Barnes of FIU was taken in the fourth round by the
Baltimore Ravens. Earlier in that round, the New England Patriots chose
defensive lineman Kareem Brown from the University of Miami.

   All three were members of Norland's 2002 state championship team … the
school's only title in football.

That team had one of the most memorable finishes ever to a state championship game when Sean Bailey hauled in that 61-yard TD pass from Robert Spence to beat Edgewater.

Thanks for the piece on the Norland Vikings draft. Kareem didn't play on the championship team. He graduated the year before. He was the only one of the 3 to be redshirted in college. Thanks again for the article.

Viking Pride!

Well it seems like the Palmetto curse is hard to break. What a dissapointment to cheer
so so so loud all year long and come up empty handed at the end.Too many trips to the ship and not win.....

No doubt that their luck just ran out,all the while the semifinal game they enjoyed
7 errors from their opponents to get the\
win.. Maybe next year.... OR NOT>>>>>>>>
