Unfortunately, Tiger Football did not share the same fate as soccer this weekend. Their season concluded with a tough 54-44 loss against Dartmouth this past Saturday. Despite their up and down season, several players shined bright for Tiger Football this year. Including two of our very own Cannon members.

• broke the Princeton single-season receptions record and finished third on the Ivy League list with 92 catches … previous Princeton record was 88 (Kevin Guthrie, 1983)
• broke the Princeton single-season touchdown catches record and finished second in the Ivy League with 14 … previous Princeton record was 11, held by Derek Graham (1983) and Roman Wilson (2013

Jesper is also one of Princeton’s rare two-sport varsity athletes. Tune in to watch him this coming baseball season.

• almost matched the Princeton single-season touchdown receptions record with 11, although Horsted broke the mark one week earlier … as a result Carlson now is second on the Princeton single-season list and 12th on the Ivy League list
