Westover High Football

Posted: Updated:

It was only a matter of inches at the Crisp County goal line last season that ended up keeping the Westover High Patriots out of the AAA state playoffs.

The Patriots believe they have the beef to make the postseason but skill is a concern.

Westover High coach Jeff Caldwell says he feels good about the guys who play with their hands on the ground.

The Patriots return three starters on defense and their offensive line.

The holes are in the skill position in the offense and in the secondary on defense.

Coach Caldwell is hoping players like Steve Bowens, Dominque Barnes and Keon Miller can step up in the backfield and secondary.

The supporting cast is needed with quarterback Rashad Johnson.

The senior was one of the leaders in total offense in the region last season.

Jeff Caldwell said. "He ran a little bit gawdy in the past and through a lot of the movement workouts we do he is a little bit more polished. He is always a threat to pull it down and run and he can make some things happen there too. So, he is a double threat. Who know, we may let him punt next."

Westover opens the season at home August 28th against Lee County.
