Matt Overton Headed to the Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 15, 2014

Intro: The Colts added another Pro Bowler on Wednesday morning as Matt Overton will join Robert Mathis and the Colts coaching staff for this year’s game on Sunday, January 26. Overton, who is one of the most active Colts in the community, will head to the Pro Bowl next week.



INDIANAPOLIS— Flash back to 2012 and Matt Overton was collecting unemployment checks with an NFL dream all but written off.

 

Turn the calendar to 2014 and Overton has achieved his dream and even reached a height he couldn’t even imagine by heading to the 2014 Pro Bowl.

 

Overton found out about the news late Tuesday night and he will join Robert Mathis and the Colts coaching staff in Hawaii next week.

 

“It’s just a huge honor and I can’t wait to represent the Colts out there,” Overton said on Wednesday morning.

 

“It brought me tears of joy and I can’t believe it. I’m just ready to soak it all in.”

 

A Colts staffer informed Overton late last night of the Pro Bowl nod.

 

Overton, who needed some reassurance before he believed what was happening, eventually called his parents to break the news.

 

The second-year long snapper is hoping to have his parents and specialists Pat McAfee and Adam Vinatieri join him in Hawaii.

 

The journey in ultimately reaching this level sped up in spring of 2012.

 

Overton attended a kicking and long-snapping combine in Arizona where Colts assistant special teams coach Brant Boyer scouted the Western Washington product.

 

An invite to the Colts 2012 training camp was coming next for Overton and two years later he has turned that into playing in 32 straight NFL games.

 

On Monday, Overton began planning his offseason which had zero inclination of a January trip to the Pro Bowl.

 

A resume of stints with the Tri-Cities Fever (Arena Football League 2), the Florida Tuskers (UFL) and the Omaha Nighthawks (UFL) certainly doesn’t scream “Future NFL Pro Bowler”.

 

But this honor comes as a testament to Overton’s perseverance of never giving up.

 

“The path that I took to get here is pretty incredible. A lot of, faith and patience,” Overton says. “Just a little over two years ago, I was kind of just bouncing around, cut from a UFL team and didn’t really think there was a future for me in the NFL.

 

“To get the Pro Bowl nod, is just a huge honor.”
