Pennsville senior quarterback Dylan Cummings has a chance to join two very exclusive clubs in the final game of his career Wednesday night against Penns Grove.

Cummings has 2,253 passing yards and 905 rushing yards this season. He needs 95 rushing yards to join former Winslow Township star Bill Belton (2009 and 2010) and former Cedar Creek star Damon Mitchell (2012) as the only players in South Jersey history with more than 2,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season.

Cummings (pictured, with teammate Drew Burdsall) has 30 touchdown passes and 18 rushing touchdowns. He needs two rushing touchdowns to join Mitchell (2012) and Mainland’s Brett Caprio (2008) as the only players in South Jersey history with 20 passing and 20 rushing touchdowns in a season.

Pennsville and Penns Grove both are 8-2 entering the annual rivalry game that will kick off at 6 p.m. Wednesday on the Eagles' field.
