Goodbye, Burlco/Olympic American.
Goodbye, Tri-County Royal.
Hello, West Jersey Football League.
This season marks the end of an era in South Jersey football. Next season, teams from the Burlco/Olympic, Tri-County, and Mercer County-based Colonial Valley will join together to form the West Jersey Football League.
There are so many key games to open the high school football season that we should call this Toss-Up Friday. Every game is important, especially for teams that could be on that always dangerous bubble when it comes to qualifying for the postseason.
When Gatto took the mound this season, more than two dozen major-league scouts gathered behind the backstop to chart his every pitch. Gatto embraced that pressure, according to St. Augustine coach Mike Bylone. Gatto went 7-1 with a 0.94 ERA, and St. Augustine won the Cape-Atlantic League American Division title as well as the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic.
