PREVIEW: Princeton looks to improve on 2012 campaign

Posted:

PRINCETON (WVVA) - After a dismal 2012 campaign, the Princeton Tigers are very ready to hit the field at the end of August.

"We're hungry, very hungry," says quarterback Jay Palmer. "Last year made me mad. I put too much work in this year. We as a team put too much work in this year."

The Tigers have spent most of the off season in the weight room, getting stronger and faster. They think that will show on the field. Now that the team is used to second-year head coach Randy Peake, they think things are coming together.

"The goal is to get to playoffs," said Nick Cook. "But first goal is August 29 when we play Shady Spring here."
