S.J. Group 5: Williamstown. The defending-champion Braves return their offensive backfield and have one of South Jersey's top all-around players, senior Marques Little. But this group has plenty of legitimate contenders, such as Cherokee, Eastern, Millville, Rancocas Valley, and Southern.
S.J. Group 4: Timber Creek. The Chargers have talent across the board and a seasoned senior quarterback in Dan Williams, and they play with a confidence bred from back-to-back sectional titles. With star running back Ray Lawry, Kingsway could challenge along with Hammonton, Shawnee, and Shore Conference power Lacey Township.
S.J. Group 3: Delsea. The defending champions have a solid offensive line, a sturdy defense, and a top two-way back in senior Rob Rolle, a Villanova recruit. Last year's finalist, Northern Burlington, and Burlington Township will be in the mix, and watch out for Shore Conference contenders Barnegat and Manasquan.
