Cleveland Glenville produces Division-I college football players on a regular basis, and this year will be no exception.
Senior athlete Chris Overton (5-foot-9, 160-pounds) has sacrificed his game for the good of the team, playing quarterback out of necessity, instead of his more natural slot receiver spot.
"I've really worked on my speed this summer and I've gotten a lot faster," Overton stated. "I've also gotten stronger, and I've concentrated on my route-running because it looks like I will be at receiver this season."
"I want to win a state championship, and that's my only goal, both for the team and for myself," he added. "I do not care what position I play, and I will do anything the coaches need from me. I want to play quarterback, wide receiver, defensive back and return kicks. Anything to help us win."
Although still awaiting his first offer, Overton attended the Ohio State camp this summer and performed well.
"I went to Ohio State and thought I did really well," he explained. "A lot of the MAC coaches said they were impressed and Kent State and Akron are recruiting me. I'm also hearing from Army and Air Force."
"I like Coach (Darrell) Hazell at Kent State a lot, and I would love to have that offer," he continued. "Akron and I have been talking as well. I'm waiting to see what happens, and the service academies are a real possibility. I'm looking for a great education and to play good football."
