"He's made such great strides as a quarterback this season. " Diaco will lead West Deptford (11-0) against Cedar Creek (9-2) in the South Jersey Group 2 championship game Sunday at Rowan University.

The trickiness is related to the complication some teams face in playing a game stuffed with significance at an odd time in the season - a few days after an emotional victory in the sectional semifinals and a little more than a week before the South Jersey championship. "You owe it to your seniors to try to win, especially when you're undefeated," West Deptford coach Clyde Folsom said.
