GOING TO KANSAS CITY: Princeton University quarterback Jeff Terrell moves out of the pocket in action last season. Terrell recently signed a rookie free agent contract to play quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs of the NFL. Terrell, who threw for 4,166 yards in his career and was named the 2006 Ivy Player of the Year after Princeton tied Yale for the league title, recently participated in mini-camp with the Chiefs.

Jeff Terrell didn't look like a potential starting Ivy League quarterback, let alone an NFL prospect, based on how he performed in his first scrimmage with the Princeton University football team.

Playing against Yale before the 2003 season, the lefty from the Cleveland area threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown.

In its next series, Princeton called the same passing play and Terrell repeated his freshman mistake as the Bulldogs made another pick which they turned into six points.

For Caitlin Corr, serving as the captain of the Princeton University women's lightweight crew is hardly an all-work and no-play proposition.

"Being a leader of this team is really easy," said the senior who hails from Buffalo, N.Y. "Everyone is really dedicated and works really hard. I just try to keep them relaxed. It's important to be focused but it's also important to have fun."

In her sophomore year at the Hun School, Tarah Kirnan traveled down to Loyola College in Baltimore to check out the 2002 NCAA women's lacrosse Final Four.

Kirnan liked what she saw as the Princeton University squad went on to beat Georgetown for the title. "I thought this is so cool," said Kirnan, who made the trip with Hun teammate Brianne Tierney and her father, Princeton men's lax head coach Bill Tierney. "It was really exciting."

A high school lacrosse team certainly needs talent to do well in the state tournament but Princeton High attacker Tyler Moni will tell you that's not the key factor in surviving playoff pressure.

"When it come down to the states and people are really tired, it's the hard workers who win the states," said Moni. "Even though we have a ton of talent, we have a lot of guys who work really hard."

Merrow Ends Tenure With PHS Boys' Hockey; Transformed Program Into Consistent Winner

When Paul Merrow took the reins of the Princeton High boys' hockey program 12 seasons ago, he was looking to instill some much-needed discipline into the program.

"There was a lot of talent and potential talent; it just needed direction," said Merrow. "We took steps in the first three years to make it respectable. We gave them a framework to play off of; we instilled systems; I don't think they had ever had that kind of thing."
