Wildwood's Hills makes Cape May County history


With another huge performance Thursday, Wildwood running back Wesley Hills made more history.

Hills ran for 195 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Wildwood’s 14-8 victory over visiting Pitman and became the first Cape May County player to top the 2,000-yard mark in a season.

He also is the first South Jersey back to reach the milestone this season.

“He makes it pretty easy coaching the offense,” Wildwood coach Rich Hans said. “His breakaway speed and his vision are unbelievable.”

Hills, who is 6-foot-3, has run for 2,077 yards this year, 125 more than his closest competitor, Glassboro’s Corey Clement.

On Oct. 3, Hills set the South Jersey rushing record with 452 yards against Maple Shade. An hour later, however, Clement surpassed the mark with 478 yards against Gloucester.

Hills scored his 34th and 35th touchdowns, including a game-winning, 42-yard score. That came on Wildwood’s first offensive play after Ryan Noon had put Pitman ahead midway through the fourth quarter with a touchdown and two-point conversion.
