A trio of former Polk County Wolverines helped Brevard College give Presbyterian a tough battle before the Blue Hose pulled away late for a 42-24 win in Saturday’s season opener in Clinton, S.C.
Andre Overholt had 210 all-purpose yards and scored a touchdown on a 36-yard pass from Tanner Wright as Brevard (0-1) trailed just 28-21 at the half. Overholt had three receptions for 81 yards and returned six kickofs for 127 yards.
Ex-Wolverine Jordan Ollis also scored a touchdown, a 3-yard run that gave Brevard a 7-0 lead, and ran for 62 yards on 18 carries.
Defensively, Juan Hicks had a pair of unassisted tackles for the Tornados.
