They are the thoughts that plague many a football senior's mind, but Overton is at least able to set them aside for a few hours a day and those precious moments on Friday night. In the end, there's still the big goal that sits above the field and he gladly rises toward.
"I want to impact people's lives for God, because I know how hard it is being in high school," Overton said. "For a lot of the kids, the cool thing is not being a Christian, and I want to change that."
