With the purchase of every Stay Ready Scholarship hat, $10 will go towards the Matt Overton Brand & Stay Ready scholarship. Matt will select a nominated athlete and award them with the scholarship. The scholarship will go towards the athletes schooling and/or seasonal equipment needs. 

Matt’s aim with Stay Ready is more than helping aspiring athletes to encourage and better prepare themselves for opportunities on the gridiron. Matt Overton Brand is a platform to help provide young aspiring athletes with the necessary tools and guidance to succeed in life. 

The young athletes that we are looking to support, exemplifies great character, work ethic, and makes a positive impact in their community. To nominate an athlete please email us at mattovertonbrand@gmail.com and tell us about the athlete and why you feel they will benefit from the Stay Ready Scholarship. We wish that we could help support every aspiring athlete financially, however, in order to make an impact with the funds we raise from the hat, Matt will be choosing one selected athlete.
