OVERVIEW Princeton returns several All-Ivy players, including unanimous first-team running back Jordan Culbreath and linebackers Scott Britton and Steven Cody, as well as four starters from its 2008 offensive line. In all, the Tigers return six offensive and seven defensive starters from last season.

Quarterbacks: Every position, even those that lost starters from last season, has enough returning experience that fans can feel like they have a certain expectation of what they’ll see in 2009. And then there is the quarterback position. It’s likely that a sophomore will start at quarterback for the first time since 2003. The frontrunners in the Class of 2012 are Tommy Wornham and Harrison Daniels, a pair of sophomores who have combined for two career completions. Of course, that doesn’t mean hope should be lost for the offense. In 2005, Terrell took the starting position without one career snap and won 16 of his next 20 games.

Running Backs: Senior Jordan Culbreath led the Ivy League in rushing last season with 1,206 yards. He had the fifth-highest single-game rushing total in Ivy League history in the 2008 season finale with 276 yards against Dartmouth. He is threatening to break into elite company in the Princeton record books this season, joining names like Elias and Garrett. He was one of only two unanimous first-team All-Ivy selections last season.

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends: Princeton lost both starting wide receivers from last season, as well as its tight end; in both cases Hughes feels there is talent ready to step up.
