Wilson steps down at COA: Health issues a burden for baseball coach
...
For two seasons, Norbie Wilson gave his heart and soul to the revived baseball program at the College of The Albemarle.
But once the 62-year-old coach started to have issues with his knee, hip and blood pressure, he knew he had given enough.
"I'm just worn out," said Wilson, who has resigned as head coach after posting winning records in each of the first two baseball seasons COA has played since dropping the sport in 1977.
...
"Milan is awesome," said Wilson, who is expecting to have knee replacement surgery soon.
...
"We are forever indebted to Coach Wilson for the amount of time and hard work he put into building our program from scratch," he said. "Thanks to him and his staff, Dolphin baseball far exceeded expectations during its first two years.
"I'm convinced that we found the perfect coach to start the program and we have found the perfect coach to build on our initial success."
COA players were not stunned to learn that Wilson is stepping down.
...
"If I had been starting a program and could have picked any person from this region or Virginia, I would have picked Coach Wilson," sophomore infielder/catcher and Elizabeth City native William Norrell said.
...
"It's been a privilege playing for Coach Wilson," added Seay.
...
Wilson doesn't see his greatest accomplishment as posting records of 22-21 and 24-21 and making the conference tournament each year or producing the first first-team All-American in school history (Jake Stone), No, at the top of the list is the 14 players who moved on to play at a four-year college this fall.
...
Wilson said he will not miss the long, arduous days associated with being the head coach at COA. He worked full-time at First Colonial and then drove 142 miles round trip to go to practices and games in Elizabeth City. Throw in the huge amount of time Wilson spent recruiting in North Carolina and Virginia and he probably put more than 40,000 Dolphins-related miles on his car in the past two years.
"When I took the job, I thought I could handle it, but it's really tough," Wilson said.
...
"Most of all, I'm thankful to COA for giving me this special chance to come back to my native state (Wilson is from Mt. Olive) and to be around people like me.

College of The Albemarle head coach Norbie Wilson, who has led the two-year-old Dolphins to a winning record in each season, said Stone's selection was significant for the program as well as the player.
"This is tremendous that we have helped produce a Junior College All-American in just two seasons," he said. "That's phenomenal. I am extremely proud of that, considering all the established programs there are around the country. Everybody should be proud ... the school, the team and Elizabeth City."
Wilson said Stone's honor will be a valuable tool in recruiting.
...
In a 2010 interview, Wilson said Stone gave him plenty to work with.

Wilson said that Stone's teammates were a factor in his success this season.
"It's not like we had a lineup full of .300 hitters," he said.

"Jake's as good a hitter as I've ever seen," Wilson said.
...
But in retrospect, Stone believes Wilson had a lot to do with preparing him to excel at Tennessee Wesleyan.
...
"I think it was good the way Coach Wilson pushed me and didn't cut me any slack," he said. "It made me a better player."
"Coming out of high school Jake was a big fish in a small pond and it took some time for him to get right," Wilson said.
