Macon, GA (WALB) -  With no player on the Westover roster taller than 6'4'' the Patriots could not stop one of the nation's most vaunted recruits in 6'9'' Derrick Favors.

The future Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket put up an uncanny 38 points and grabbed 20 rebounds leading South Atlanta to the Class AAA State Championship in a 81-62 win over Westover.

Despite the loss, Westover head coach Dallis Smith says reaching the state championship game was a big step in the right direction.

"I think it did. We've been working since I've been there to try and get back to this point and I think this year we kind of got to that level where we wanted to in the beginning of the year."

Westover finishes the season at 29-7.
