ROCHELLE, GA (WALB) - After beating the number one team in Class A the Wilcox County Patriots are the Colony Bank team of the week.
Wilcox County came from behind last Friday to upset Wesleyan 20-15. Colony Bank manager Rhonda Henderson presented the award to the Patriots at practice Tuesday. Next up for the Patriots will be a trip to Clinch County for the semifinals Friday night.
Two years ago the Patriots finished state runner up and head coach Mark Ledford is eager to get his team back to the championship game to make school history.
"One thing we've done here at Wilcox County is win that state championship. It's very illusive. You've got to be a good football team but you've got to get the breaks and you've got to make the plays when they come up" said Ledford.
"We're playing the best ball of the year. We're playing good team ball. Our kids are making the big plays and we've handled adversity through the playoffs" said Ledford.
Wilcox County and Clinch County kick off at 7:30 Friday night in Homerville.
