Western Region Preview

For our final region preview, we will look at the region traveling the farthest to prove they are the best in the state. Including Section 5 and 6, Western will play each region physically. During the tryouts, one of the Western directors,  Deven York told his team that college coaches love upstate players because of their toughness.
