The St. Joseph High School football stands on the verge of history, according to South Jersey football historian Chuck Langerman.

The Wildcats (8-0) average 48.9 points per game. They have outscored their opponents 391-16.

The Cape-Atlantic League record for average points per game is 44.5 set by the 2005 St. Joe team, according to Langerman. This year's Wildcats would have to score a total of 55 points in their remaining two games to break that record.

The South Jersey record is 48.4 set by the 1996 Salem team, Langerman said. St. Joe would have to score 94 points to break that mark.

Langerman said the Delaware Valley (South Jersey, Southeastern Pennsylvania) record is 49.7 set by the 1970 Springfield High School team in Montgomery County.

Langerman noted that Springfield was coached by Al Black, a Northfield native. St. Joe would have to score 107 points in its last two games to break the Springfield record.

St. Joe will have to wait awhile to make its run at history. The Wildcats are off until Nov. 26 when they will meet neighborhood rival Hammonton.

St. Joe will then play for the state Non-Public I title on Dec. 3.

Thanks to Chuck Langerman for the information.
