Sports Overtime celebrates 30 years of high school football coverage

Sports Overtime 30th Anniversary

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - For the past 30 years, WTVM’s Sports Overtime has been the home of high school football in the Chattahoochee Valley.

Since 1989, Dave Platta has analyzed the highs and lows of that week’s games, previewed next week’s match-ups, and taken you to the sidelines of the best games.

In it’s 30th year, Sports Overtime, hosted by Dave Platta and Paul Stockman, will continue to give you local football coverage every Friday night during the high school football season.

It takes more than just one night to offer high school football coverage you can count on.

That is why Sports Overtime continues past Friday night, keeping you informed as you head into the next week of games.
