POWDERSVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – As we first reported Tuesday afternoon, Powdersville offensive coordinator Ryan Norton, a former Mauldin and Clemson offensive lineman, has been named head football coach at Palmetto High School.

The Anderson County school made the official announcement later in the afternoon.

Norton has guided a Powdersville offense that featured Virginia Tech-bound stand-out Thomas Williams in recent seasons. The Patriots were the 3A state runner-up this past fall.

He replaces Doug Shaw at Palmetto, who left the job earlier this year.
