James Overbo

POSITION Associate Head Coach

James Overbo enters his sixth season as a member of the Crusader track and field coaching staff, and his first as Associate Head Coach in 2013, working primarily with the jumpers, as well as the javelin throwers.

Overbo’s jumpers have experienced plenty of success during his time with the Crusaders, highlighted by the performance of Jarrett Mickens.  Overbo coached Mickens as he was a four-time All-Horizon League honoree and earned Most Outstanding Field Performer honors at the 2011 HL Indoor Championships.  Mickens, who seven times earned HL Male Field Athlete of the Week honors while being coached by Overbo, broke school records in both the long and triple jump indoors and the long jump outdoors, surpassing 35-year-old records in all three events.

During his time at Valpo, Overbo has also coached Julian Smith in the long jump and Steve Schubert in the triple jump as they broke into the Crusaders’ indoor all-time top-fives in the respective events.  Schubert also ranks among Valpo’s all-time top-five outdoors in the triple jump as well.  On the women’s side, Overbo mentored Kelley Freeman in 2011 as she posted marks among the top-three in Crusader history both indoors and outdoors in the pole vault.

Overbo has also produced a pair of conference champions in the javelin throw.  Brett Maynard (2009) and Vince Liuzzo (2010) both claimed Horizon League crowns in the javelin under Overbo's guidance.

Overbo came to Valparaiso from McNeese State University, where he competed in the pole vault for the Cowboys' track and field squad for four years.  He has also served as an assistant coach at the Lone Star Pole Vault Club.

A native of Austin, Texas, Overbo earned a bachelor's degree of general studies with a concentration in health promotion from McNeese State in 2008.  Overbo has earned his USATF Level 1 Certification, as well as certification as an official.  He also owns his USATF Level 2 Certification in the jumps and throws and is also a USTFCCCA Certified Jumps Specialist.
