So even after opening with a 36-18 win over Glassboro this season and then winning its next three games by a combined 146-8 score, the Red Devils are taking the proverbial one-game-at-a-time approach.
The only adversity the Red Devils faced this year came when they trailed host Glassboro, 12-6, at halftime.
"Previous years, we might have collapsed trailing at the half to them, but this year, we picked each other up," senior quarterback/defensive back Nick Elmer said.
Few players do a better job of picking up than the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Elmer, who is playing in the secondary this year in addition to running the no-huddle offense.
Elmer completed 9 of 18 passes for 179 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception Saturday. He had 14 carries for 68 yards and a touchdown.
What is impressive is that this is far from a one-man show. Penns Grove is as adept at running the ball as throwing it.
Explosive junior Anthony Robertson gained 92 yards on eight carries and scored on a 69-yard pass. Junior Richard Gray added a 27-yard touchdown catch.
Senior Ja'brail Murray recorded three interceptions, caught one touchdown pass, and carried four times for 45 yards and another score.
On the other side of the ball, Penns Grove is just as fast and relentless. Isaiah Coppage, a 6-foot-5, 190-pound junior outside linebacker, is able to outrun running backs. He is also a strong blocker as a guard and should be one of South Jersey's top recruits next year.
The list goes on and on.
"They are fast, big and physical," said Woodstown coach John Adams, whose 2-2 team should make a serious run at a South Jersey Group 2 playoff berth.
The Red Devils finished last season 7-4, which most programs would take in a heartbeat, but they never matched that opening performance against Glassboro.
One of the losses last year was a 14-12 defeat against Woodstown.
"We lost to them and didn't forget that," Robertson said.
And nobody should forget about the Red Devils, especially in December, a month in which they haven't played very often. Penns Grove has not won a sectional title since the advent of NJSIAA playoffs in 1974 and has been to the finals once, losing to Glassboro in 2008.
It's possible that this could be the year, but one won't hear the Red Devils talking about this.
