Josh Norman now has a league of his own.

According to a report from FoxCarolina.com, the Coastal Carolina alumnus and cornerback for the Washington Redskins is starting a 7-on-7 high school football league in his native Greenwood.

Fox Carolina reports that Norman says via a press release that the league will “provide opportunities for youth … utilizing training, leadership and football as tools to engage youth physically, academically and socially.”

Norman said the league will include Upstate travel teams and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has a team entered, according to the report.

The league will include an “East Meets West” tournament in Dallas this summer, Fox Carolina reports.

Carolina Panther quarterback Cam Newton was asked if he believes he needs more offensive weapons but Newton says, "I just need to be better." Newton believes that he is the leader and a lot of responsibility goes with that position.
