SJ Football: New conference

Goodbye, Burlco Olympic American.

Hello, West Jersey Football League.

In a nod to the past, as well as to geography, the new football superconference that will include many teams from South Jersey will be called the West Jersey Football League.

The league debuts in 2010. It will include 66 teams from the Burlco Olympic, Tri-County and Mercer County-based Colonial Valley.

Some of the new division alignments will be familiar. But some will be different: Williamstown and Clearview will be in with Cherry Hill East, Cherry Hill West and Winslow, for instance.

Another interesing division has Triton, Timber Creek and Highland in with Kingsway, Delsea and Cumberland.

Camden and Woodrow Wilson are projected to be in the same division with Deptford, Gloucester Catholic and Bishop Eustace.

Read more about the new superconference in the Inquirer South Jersey High School Football Guide, which will be published Sept. 10.
