As an offensive tackle in Pennsville's frenetic offense, Tim Esham knows all about operating at a fast pace.
But the senior knows another clock is running down, too.
"We know we're at the point of the season where if we don't execute, we're done," Esham said, referring to the start of the state tournament.
For Esham and the rest of Pennsville's seniors, Friday's home playoff game against Gloucester will mark the frantic, final stretch of their careers.
As the No. 1 seed, Pennsville (7-1) is positioned to capture its first South Jersey title since the creation of the playoff system in 1974.
