As a former player, there are many Princeton football games that I’ll never forget (until the CTE sets in, but I digress). On Nov. 11, 2006, we traveled to face Yale at the Yale Bowl in a matchup that would likely determine that year’s Ivy League champion. Just a freshman, I watched as we fell behind 28–14 at the half. I entered the game after halftime due to injuries as our team rallied behind Jeff Terrell ’07 and Brendan Circle ’08 for a 34–31 victory. That day marked many firsts: my first collegiate football snaps, clinching the first Princeton football bonfire since 1994, and the first time I’ve seen visiting fans storm the home team’s field. What an incredible day and memory that I’ll have with me forever.
