Veteran coach Glenn Howard has high hopes for Paulsboro, thanks to a sturdy defense and a potential star in inexperienced quarterback Kevin Johnson.

Senior LB Zach Greenwald leads the defense. Greenwald is a Division I recruit who says he's narrowed his college choices to Rutgers, Boston College, Virginia and James Madison.

Most intriguing is the potential of senior quarterback Kevin Johnson. The starting point guard on the basketball team, the cat-quick Johnson was projected as the starting quarterback last season. He was tearing up last summer.

But he suffered a deep thigh bruise the day before the season opener, played sparingly in that one game and sat out the rest of the season. Howard said Johnson is "primed" for a break-out senior season.

Paulsboro is the Colonial Patriot favorite, although Woodbury could challenge the Red Raiders. In Group 1, Paulsboro is gunning for a shot at two-time defending champion Glassboro.

The Bulldogs, who own a 24-game winning streak, knocked the Red Raiders out of the playoffs in 2007 and 2008.

"We want to prove a point," Greenwald said.
