He spent the dead period revitalizing the FSU fan base. He packed up his entire staff and hit the road for a series of football camps for elementary school kids. Thousands of kids and family members came. The kids had a once in a lifetime experience. The families became FSU fans. HS coaches were impressed by Mike’s community spirit.

HS coaches started contacting Norvell about their best players. So what did Norvell do? He invited all their players to come to an FSU Mega Camp. Then he opened attendance to every college coach, NAIA through P5, that wanted to evaluate the players. The HS coaches loved it. Their kids that may never make it to FSU, got a chance at open positions across the country.

Finally, Norvell celebrated the end of the Dead Period with a Midnight Madness party for invited 4 and 5 star players and their families. It was well attended. Everybody enjoyed the party and tours and players ended up recruiting each other for FSU.
