Offensive Recruits l Defensive Recruits (next week) l Spring Offensive Recap l Spring Defensive Recap l Lift For Life l Ring CeremonyThe Ivy League champion Princeton football team understands that a historic class will graduate next month. The Class of 2017 became the first to play on two different Ivy League championship teams since the 1960s, and several of them earned All-Ivy accolades last fall while leading the Tigers to a historic championship run.

Bob Surace, the reigning Ivy League Coach of the Year and a three-time National Coach of the Year finalist, has proven an ability to keep restocking the program with young talent. After Princeton had six straight losing seasons between 2007-2011, the Tigers have been either .500 or better in each of the last five years.

Surace announced the newest members of the Princeton Football program, a 30-member class he believes can continue to build on the foundation of success that his most recent squads have developed.

He also shared some thoughts on the recruits with GoPrincetonTigers.com during the annual Spring Video Series; the episode linked to this release focuses on his offensive recruits. Check back next week to hear about his defensive/special teams recruits.
