An All-Western North Carolina selection as a defensive back, Overholt recorded 88 tackles this season, intercepting two passes.
He started nine games at quarterback for Polk County before shifting to wide receiver. He finished as Polk County’s second-leading rusher with 805 yards and seven touchdowns, passed for 629 yards and 11 touchdowns, caught 13 passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns and also had a punt return for a score.
