ROCK HILL, S.C. – Brevard’s Andre Overholt has been named the South Atlantic Conference Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance as a kick returner in the Tornados’ 56-31 loss to Division I Liberty on Saturday.
Overholt returned three kickoffs for 95 yards against the Flames, including a 54-yard return to Liberty’s 43-yard line after the Flames’ first touchdown to give Brevard’s offense excellent starting field position. He averaged 31.7 yards per kickoff return on the evening.
Overholt extends his own school records for returning kicks in Saturday night’s contest. He is the most prolific kick returner in Brevard history, with 1,724 yards on 77 kickoff returns in his career. He is also 64 rushing yards shy of topping 1,000 in his career, and ranks second all-time behind fellow senior Kelvin Jeter with 3,304 all-purpose yards in a Tornados uniform.
