The Wilcox County Patriots started slow then started clicking and consequently they are now in control of their on destiny win a few more winnable games and you are in the play offs.

“The guys have really started to gel, they are working hard, working together and reducing mistakes and that is a winning combination,” said Head Coach Clint Bloodsworth. “ The remaining schedule we have is achievable, they have to stay focused on the task at hand.” With an 11-9 overall record and 8-5 in the region, the Patriots have 3 remaining region games  against teams they have already beaten decisively this year. If they win out in the region then the # 3 seed is almost a lock. With Strong Senior leadership the playoffs look promising for The Patriots.
