Overland High School does not want for athletes! 2015 corner Josh Wright just won a state title in the hurdles and will take his football game to DII ball. Quarterback Austin Conway will play point guard for the University of Wyoming next year and linebacker Kevin Prosser will play for the Wyoming football squad.
The 2016 Overland athlete garnering this most attention this offseason is strong safety Alijah Halliburton. It has been a good week for the 6-2 180 pound safety who, in the past few days, gained offers from South Dakota and Nevada. This week’s offers are in addition to an earlier offer from Wyoming, and athletic department that loves Overland players.
Halliburton is a rangy safety that is comfortable in coverage and against the run. Beyond football, Halliburton was an important contributor for an Overland team that won this year’s 5A basketball title.
Halliburton is also a member of the Overland track team. Boasting size and athleticism, Halliburton will add to his list over the next few weeks and into his senior season.
