JESPER HORSTED ’19 caught three touchdown passes in football’s Sept. 22 win over Monmouth, raising his career total to 20 — a new Princeton record. On the record-breaking play, he snagged a 35–yard toss from John Lovett ’19, skipped over the arms of a diving defender, and sprinted another 45 yards down the sideline for the score. Last fall, Horsted broke the Tigers’ single-season records for receptions (92) and receiving touchdowns (14). He also earned All-Ivy honors in baseball as Princeton’s starting centerfielder and batting-average leader in 2018.
