MaKynlee Overton, a Coahoma High School senior, has been named to the Academic All State Team by the Texas State Athletic Trainers' Association.
“This is a big achievement for her and well deserved,” said Chris Joslin, CISD athletic director. “She is a trainer in our football program, while still playing four sports herself and maintaining a high grade point average.”
Overton joins an elite statewide group recognized for their academic achievements, while providing a vital role to their school’s athletic program.
In order to be considered for the award, students must be graduating seniors, be in good standing as an athletic trainer, be of good moral character, and have a grade point average of 3.8 or higher.
Overton is a member of the National Honor Society. She is a standout athlete at CHS and participates in volleyball, basketball, softball, and track.
Last fall, Overton was one of nine CHS students named to the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) Football Academic All-State Team. She is the daughter of John and Amy Overton.
