Jamie Franks on Norman:
“Destan will do all the dirty work for everybody else. He’s a mature young man in the sense of he understands who he is as a person, and what he wants out of the game. His daily commitment to his development as a player is second to none. For us, he’s a guy that will come in and compete for a starting spot right away.”

Danny Bills, Real Colorado, on Norman:
“Destan has been a great captain for Real Colorado. He is a player that is constantly pushing himself and his teammates to improve on and off the field. We are proud to watch him play for DU.”
