Jordan Sciamanna says the best thing about wrestling is the loneliness inside that circle. Sciamanna, a senior at Paul VI High School, says the sport's greatest lesson is personal responsbility. "You can't blame anybody else," Sciamanna said. "I used to play football, and when something goes wrong in that sport there's 10 other guys who were a part of it. "It's not like that in wrestling. It's just you out there. You can't look at anybody else. " Sciamanna has embraced the individual challenge of making the most of his senior season.

As he was engineering 30 unanswered points to end his final high school game, Camden Catholic quarterback Tyree Rodgers realized one final time how special it is to take snaps behind center. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound senior completed 14 of 21 passes for 216 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also ran for a score as Camden Catholic spotted Paul VI the first nine points before winning their Thanksgiving rivalry, 30-9, at the Irish's Shamrock Field. Rodgers, who also plays defensive back, is talented enough to have earned a football scholarship to Old Dominion.
