The Princeton football team put together an 8-2 record and spent much of the season in the national top 25 and did so with balance on both sides of the ball. The 2019 All-Ivy League football team reflects that balance.
Princeton had three first-team selections and then seven second-team selections, as well as four honorable mention picks that ran the total number of All-Ivy selections to 14.
“We played as a team all year,” said head coach Bob Surace. “When I think of this team, I’ll always think about how well they all played together and how many different guys made significant contributions. This team was never going to be about individual honors, but it’s still great to see so many guys get recognized.”
Jeremiah Tyler led the way as Princeton’s lone unanimous first-team All-Ivy League selection. Tyler, a junior linebacker who was a second-team pick a year ago, led the Ivy League in tackles for loss and was second on the team in total tackles with 62 (34 solo). He was one of four unanimous first-team selections.
Senior Alex Deters finished his career as a first-team All-Ivy center after starting all 10 games. Deters helped an offense that averaged 425 total yards per game.
Junior cornerback Delan Stallworth, like Tyler, was a first-team All-Ivy League honoree this season after being a second-team pick last year. Stallworth led the Ivy League in solo tackles with six per game, and he finished the season third on the team in total tackles while adding an interception and four pass breakups.
Princeton’s seven second-team selections included junior Collin Eaddy, a running back who led the league with 12 rushing touchdowns and led Princeton with 799 yards rushing.
