When it comes to sports, it is a well-known, definitive fact that if you look good and feel good, you play g̶o̶o̶d̶ well. Thus, the drip is crucial to the success on field or the court. This is fact.
However, there are times where the drip is dried up. Literally.
Texas linebacker DeMarvion Overshown is a fifth-year senior who has played in 38 career games and made 22 starts. He was selected as a 2021 Butkus Award semifinalist, given to the best linebacker in the country, and earned All-Big 12 honorable mention in 2020 and 2021.
Prior to 2020, Overshown was a defensive back and has found a lot of success after making the position switch. Now, in his final year of eligibility, he is hoping to blossom into a next-level superstar on the second level for the Longhorns.
At 6-foot-4, 221 pounds, he has the intangibles necessary to make an impact and he is also bringing the ‘look good, feel good, play good’ mentality to the field. Overshown arrived at spring practice earlier this month rocking 28 — yes, 28 — sweatbands.
And to make his serious accessories even crazier, he wore all 23 — yes, 28 — on his right arm and leg.
That's… a lot of sweatbands… pic.twitter.com/1I1x96Eg9r

Overshown’s look is certainly unique. He only wore it during one spring practice, so it is unclear whether he will do it for every practice or every game, but it is definitely different.
After the look made its way online, there were a lot of reactions to Overshown’s sweatbands, mostly questions.
Perhaps sweatbands of all the enemies he’s beaten?

Whether Overshown will wear this in a game or not is to be determined. If he does and plays well, it will make him the coolest player on the field. If he does and doesn’t play well, it will make him the lamest player on the field.
