Westover High School is coming off their best season last year under Head Coach Octavia Jones with an 8-4 overall record and a playoff win.

This year coach Jones expects to capitalize on last year's success and continue the trend with another playoff run.

Octavia Jones says "these guys that are seniors now are hungry for another playoff run and they want to pass that second round with a shot to play at the Georgia Dome."

For the Patriots heading into the new season, they do have some experience on both sides of the ball with four returning starters on offense and six returning on defense.

Coach Jones says "we got guys last year who got some experience early due to injuries and we are looking forward to seeing what type of excitement they will provide for us this year."

Last year, Westover kicked off their season at home against Tift County High School and this year the opponent is the same except the Patriots will be on the road.
