BOMBS AWAY: Princeton University senior quarterback Brian Anderson unloads the 52-yard touchdown pass to Trey Peacock in the fourth quarter last Saturday that proved to be the margin of victory in Princetons 27-24 win at Columbia in the Ivy League opener for both teams. Anderson hit on 14-of-19 passes for 237 yards and three touchdowns in the victory and was named as the Ivy League Co-Offensive Player of the Week along with Cornell receiver Jesse Baker.
In 2006, a cool-headed 62 left-handed senior quarterback with Midwestern roots traveled to upper Manhattan and led the Princeton University football team to a win over Columbia in the Ivy League opener.
That quarterback, Jeff Terrell, went on to lead Princeton to a 9-1 record and an Ivy championship, winning the Asa Bushnell Cup as the leagues Player of the Year.
Last Saturday, another smooth 62 lefty senior quarterback from the midwest led Princeton up to Columbia as the teams clashed in their Ivy opener.
This years quarterback, Brian Anderson, did a pretty good imitation of Ohio native Terrell, leading Princeton to a thrilling 27-24 win which saw the Tigers come back from two deficits to pull out the victory before 8,733 at Kraft Field in Wien Stadium.
Aly Pont made the most of her role as understudy last fall during her freshman season on the Princeton University womens soccer team.
Soaking in all she could from playing behind star senior goalie Maren Dale, Pont learned the ropes of playing keeper at the college level.
Coming into the fall, Sam Kotowski felt a bit lonely up front for the Princeton High boys soccer team.
Over his career, the star forward forged productive partnerships with fellow Cranbury residents Ross MacDonald and then Kyle DeBlois.
With MacDonald having graduated in 2007 and DeBlois a year later, Kotowski acknowledged that he has faced an adjustment.
Maddie Copeland may be just a freshman but she was determined to help trigger the offense for the Stuart Country Day field hockey team as it played at Hun last Thursday.
I knew it was a big game and I knew we all had to come out strong and get a win, said Copeland. We pulled it together.
In the early stages of its game at the Lawrenceville School last Saturday, the Hun School football team certainly didnt look like the juggernaut it hopes to be.
The Raiders repeatedly shot themselves in the foot, getting called for several penalties that stalled their progress.
Although Hun head coach David Dudeck wasnt happy with the infractions, he had a sense that his team would ultimately dominate the contest.
