Sun Herald offensive player of the week: Wayne Overman III

ST. MARTIN -- The Yellow Jackets hit on some big plays Friday night and junior Wayne Overman III was a big reason why.

The strong-armed quarterback completed 6 of 13 passes for 194 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 85 yards and a 6-yard score in St. Martin's 42-14 win over Harrison Central.

Overman's touchdown passes went for 46, 21 and 43 yards. He also picked up a couple crucial first downs with his legs.

"I felt like we went out there and executed everything we did in practice," he said. "We came out in the second half and didn't let off the gas."

On the season, Overman has completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 1,308 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's also rushed for 626 yards and eight scores.
