ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The halls were filled with spirit at Westover High School with students and faculty excited about their home playoff game.

"Today is spirit day so everyone is wearing their red, white, and blue," said Larry Childs Westover High School football player.

"Since it's kind of cold I mean everybody is kind of down, but we are trying to get everybody in the spirit," said Westover High School Cheerleaders.

Lee County fans are planning something different as they host Effingham County.

"Coach Fabrizo came up with the blackout and we don't really do it that often, so everybody is pretty excited about it. The band is blacking out everybody is blacking out cheerleaders so everybody is pretty happy about it," said Jenny Holloway Lee County High School SGA President.

"The atmosphere OS the school is a lot of school pride and enthusiasm. So the students are dressed up in black today, so they are excited about that and the team will be dressed in black as well," said Lee County High School Assistant Principal.

 The Westover marching band is ready to help pump up the team and crowd.

"We decided to add two songs, "We Just Got Paid" and "June 27th" to kind of get the crowd hyped up," said Briana Jackson Westover Drum Major.

Both teams are say they're ready for the big games because of their hard work.

"Well our football team has been practicing hard, but coach is treating it like another game. We are very excited our staff we've dressed for spirit this week," said Westover High School Assistant Principal Dr. Kimberly Ingram.

"Any other game, focus is the same practice is the same everything is the same just so we can win," said Larry Childs Westover High School football player.

"Personally I think we can go all the way, I really do you know. I think we have the talent, heart and the pride to be able to do it," said Kirven Davis Lee County High School football player.

As we near kick-off both teams encourage folks to come out and support their team.

The Patriot's made school history this year by winning their first ever football region title and the Trojans won their second football region title.
