Dear Princeton Football Family,

Undefeated Ivy League Champions! It was a truly remarkable year in Princeton Football’s storied history.

More than ever, we are so grateful for our loyal Princeton alumni, parents, and friends who have supported the football program through gifts to the Princeton Football Association in fiscal year 2019 (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019).

Your support has always been important to our success! Program highlights from 2018 include:

  • The first undefeated season since 1964 and Ivy Champs.
  • 9th ranked team in the country in both the AFCA Coaches Poll and the FCS Stats Media Poll.
  • John Lovett ’19 won the Bushnell Cup and became the 12th Tiger to earn Ivy League Player of the Year honors. An All-American quarterback, Lovett was also named the recipient of the Brian Westbrook Tri-State Player of the Year. John is now in camp with the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Jesper Horsted ’19 broke the all-time receiving record and is now in camp with the Chicago Bears. His dynamic receiving partner Stephen Carlson ’19 is in camp with the Cleveland Browns.
  • More Awards – 18 Princeton players selected All-Ivy. Charles W. Caldwell Jr. ’25 Head Coach of Football Bob Surace ’90 was the Maxwell Football Club’s Andy Talley Tri-State Coach of the Year.
  • Awesome Bonfire celebrating Big 3 Championship.
  • The completion of the new Princeton Football locker room through the essential support of our generous alumni and family members.

2019 is also the celebration of 150 years of Princeton Football. In 2019, we have both Harvard and Yale at home, and the 150th Anniversary game at Yankee Stadium on November 9th.
