But now, it TMs even bigger.The Patriots and Trojans will square off on August 23rd at 1 P.M. in Leesburg, and the game will be shown on ESPNU. It TMs part of a weekend-long rollout of games by ESPN TMs family of networks.It TMs really bigger than Westover and Lee County, said Patriots TM coach Octavia Jones. It TMs a Southwest Georgia thing now.Westover defensive lineman Trent Thompson is currently ranked first in the ESPN300 recruiting rankings for the class of 2015.
