Even if he had been healthy as a junior, put up big statistics, and led his team deep into the playoffs, Nick Elmer still would be anticipating his senior season at Penns Grove. "Ever since we were little, people have been saying, 'That's the team. That's the team,' " Elmer said, referring to his senior class. "People always have been saying this was going to be a special team. " Most seniors are motivated to make the most of their final season. Elmer has an extra edge because of the frustration of his junior year.

Salem junior receiver/linebacker Daiquan Blake deserves some points for honesty. He gets even more for the actual points he created as the Rams scored 22 unanswered in the fourth quarter to defeat Penns Grove, 22-14, Saturday in a South Jersey Group 1 football quarterfinal. Before Blake and his teammates awoke, the fourth-seeded Rams had played a lackluster first three quarters. "It's the most lackadaisical we have been all season," said coach Dennis Thomas, a former Salem star who enjoyed a successful career at Rutgers.

The boys' basketball game yesterday afternoon between host Gloucester and Penns Grove was one marked by many misses.

Gloucester was missing its shooting touch (22 for 68). The Lions also missed a golden opportunity to erase a 21-point deficit by getting a technical foul late in the game.

Elmer, a 5-foot-10 junior, ran for 69 yards and passed for 90 yards and a touchdown as Penns Grove won this battle of South Jersey Group 1 playoff contenders on a hot, humid afternoon.

The crowd was cheering wildly as the match entered its later stages. Unfortunately, most of that attention wasn't directed at the participants in yesterday's nonleague match between Audubon High and Penns Grove at Haddon Township. These two teams had the misfortune of wrestling on the mat next to the audience-captivating Paulsboro-Haddon Township encounter as part of a quadrangular meet. Penns Grove beat Audubon, 31-29, but neither team gained the full attention of the partisan Haddon Township crowd.

Jack Prigger, who coached the Penns Grove football team for two stints totaling 19 years, won't be returning next season. Prigger was informed Monday that the Board of Education has requested that he not reapply for the job. Prigger had coached from 1975 to 1990, posting an 84-55 mark. He returned in 2000 and the Red Raiders went 5-25 over the last three years, including 0-10 this last season. "I'm surprised because when I came back [in 2000], I figured it would take four or five years and that it wouldn't be turned around overnight," Prigger said.

If he told them once, he told them a thousand times: This was their year. They were seniors. They were going to win a South Jersey title in football. That was Kyle Pszenny. He could talk. His voice was a constant in the huddle, in the locker room, in the classroom, in any social situation. "Kyle is the kind of kid, he lights up a room," Pennsville High School senior Jeremy Boucher said. "He could talk to anybody about anything. " For the senior captains of Pennsville's newly crowned championship team - Boucher, Matt Widmaier, Ryan Simpkins and Josh Van Blarcom - their close friend's constant chatter didn't truly stop during the Eagles' sad and sweet and "surreal" run to the little Salem County school's first sectional title in football in 34 years.
