FAMU Athletics: Football progress

TALLAHASSEE, Florida -- Florida A&M’s football team held a scrimmage on Saturday, which Overton attended. He said the team looks more competitive than it did last year, though he’ll reserve judgment until the group plays a few games.

Overton was also willing to talk about what the Rattlers might play for in future seasons. FAMU is ineligible for the postseason this year, but Overton said he expects that to change soon.

“We should get it back this next year,” Overton said. “Our numbers are right. As long as our APR numbers continue to trend they way that they are.”

Overton, who was a four-year starter on the offensive line at Oklahoma in the 90s, said he saw explosive plays during Saturday’s scrimmage – something that was missing last year.

“I saw four competitive quarterbacks, which I did not see before,” Overton said. “Last year we didn’t have four competitive quarterbacks. We’ve got some guys this year. Everybody’s pushing each other.”
