He grew up in Brandon, MS and was a Brandon High School graduate of 1960, where he played Baseball, Basketball and Football.

Mr. Overby was an avid sports fan of Brandon High School football where he was announcer for the Bulldogs Football games for several years in the past. Ole Miss Rebels were another favorite, and he listened to every game of both teams that he could get on the radio or television.
