REIGNING IVY CHAMPION PRINCETON FOOTBALL SET TO OPEN SPRING SEASON SATURDAY
2018 was a moment in Princeton Football history that few will forget.
Ironically, the group that plans to (temporarily) forget about it first is the 2019 Princeton Tigers. After all, the spring practice season is about the future, not the past.
Princeton opens its 12-session spring practice this Saturday, March 9, and will continue through its annual Spring Game on April 13. All midweek practices are slated for 4:45 starts, while weekend sessions are TBA.
Princeton is coming off its first undefeated season since 1964, but it also enters the spring with several young players that the coaching staff is excited to see develop. There are several positions that will see significant transition due to graduation, including quarterback, wide receivers and inside linebacker. Head coach Bob Surace shared some thoughts about that on the latest Original Eleven podcast.
This will also be an early opportunity for his new coaching staff to work together with the players. While Princeton will have familiar faces in new coordinator positions (Andrew Aurich on offense; Mike Mendenhall on special teams), the Tigers also have new coaches in both Brian Flynn (wide receivers) and Mike Weick (inside linebackers). Mark Rosenbaum has moved positions on the offensive staff and will now coach the quarterbacks.
