BRIAN’S SONG: Princeton University football senior quarterback and tri-captain Brian Anderson displays his passing form. After riding the bench most of last fall, Anderson led Princeton to a victory over Dartmouth in the season finale. The Tigers are hoping he will pick up where he left off when they begin their 2008 campaign by playing at The Citadel this Saturday.

PU Football Relying on Chemistry, Efficient Play as It Kicks Off Season With Battle at The Citadel

One doesn’t have to go beyond the cover of the Princeton University football team’s playbook to learn a major theme of the upcoming season.

“On our playbook we have the quote ‘zero turnovers, we win,’“ said Princeton head coach Roger Hughes at the program’s recent media day. “So we have made a huge emphasis on both sides on cutting down turnovers.”

Tri-Captain Berry Has Everybody on Same Page as PU Football Aims to Rekindle Team Chemistry

Like a lot of college football players, Adam Berry spent his freshman season with the Princeton University squad as an understudy, riding the bench as he learned the system.

After not seeing any action in his debut campaign of 2005, Berry didn’t waste any time getting noticed as a sophomore the next fall.

The 6’0, 165-pound wide receiver caught the game-winning touchdown in Princeton’s season-opening 14-10 win at Lehigh.

Senior Striker Perez Seizes Opportunity as PHS Boys’ Soccer Survives in Opener

Bill Alden

It was pouring rain last Friday afternoon but that didn’t dampen Anastacio Perez’s joy as he scored the first goal of the season for the Princeton High boys’ soccer team.

After deftly striking a ball into the back of the net early in the first half of PHS’s season opener against visiting Lawrence High, Perez went head over heels as he launched into a series of flips.

PHS, though, was spinning its wheels for a big stretch of the game as a physical Lawrence side gave the Little Tigers trouble and evened the game early in the second half.

Struggling With Rash of Injuries, Hun Football Stumbles in Opener

Bill Alden

Things fell into place for the Hun School football team right from the start in 2007 as the Raiders rolled to a 9-0 campaign.

So far in 2008, however, it appears that Murphy’s Law has afflicted the Hun program.

“This was the most difficult camp I’ve had,” said longtime Hun head coach David Dudeck. “We have had six starters out and five of those kids play both ways.”

With Passano, Fellow Seniors Coming Up Big Stuart Field Hockey Looks To Be a Powerhouse

Bill Alden

Caroline Passano and her fellow seniors on the Stuart Country Day field hockey team know that they have a tough act to follow.

Last season, a core of battle-hardened seniors led Stuart to one of the greatest seasons in program history as the Tartans went 20-1-3, winning their third straight Mercer County Tournament championship and tying Lawrenceville for the state Prep title.
