ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Westover Patriots are not bashful.Westover is this WALB Team of the Week after their 20-6 win over Crisp County last week.

They are very open about their goal to win the region 1-AAA title this season.

Colony Bank's Phil Franklin presented head coach Octavia Jones and his players with the plaque and football at Tuesday's practice.

Westover's win keeps them in the race for the region title with three weeks left in the regular season.

Coach Jones preached how important Friday's game was for Westover's region title hopes.

His players heard his message and delivered.

 

Octavia Jones said. "We knew this was a must win game for us in order for us to keep our playoffs hopes alive as well our hopes for a region championship alive. So I was very proud that the guys went out and executed the game plan on both sides of the ball."

Fullback Mckenny Martin said. "It was crazy because Im a senior and I've been here my whole 4 years and we've never done something like this so we know it's the new Westover and we have something to prove to everybody."

Westover hosts Cairo Friday night.
