POSING A THREAT: Princeton University junior defensive lineman Pat Gallagher chases Lehigh quarterback Sedale Threatt last Saturday in Princeton's season-opening 32-21 loss to the Mountain Hawks.

Bill Alden

Last fall, the Princeton University football team started its season by digging a 10-0 hole at Lehigh.

Bill Alden

In the fall of 2004, Antoine Hoppenot struggled to make an impact as a freshman on the Princeton Day School boys' soccer team.
