PHILADELPHIA - Colin Dampier made the most of his first collegiate start, turning four of his nine completions into touchdowns as Penn defeated Princeton, 53-18 in the sprint football season finale.
Dampier opened the scoring with a 23-yard touchdown pass to Tomas Altamirano with 5:57 remaining in the first quarter. He closed out the first half with an 11-yard TD pass to Marten Basta with :32 remaining in the second quarter.
He hooked up with Clarke Armatis for a 14-yard score 4:51 into the third quarter and found Ryan Levan from 4-yards out to complete his day with 7:23 left in the game.
Dampier finished his first season in the Red and Blue with five touchdown passes on just 13 completions in mostly backup duty for the Quakers. When starter Michael D'Angelo went down with an injury late in the first half versus Navy, Dampier capably stepped in and led the Quakers.
His first start could not have gone any better. In addition to the four touchdown passes, he managed to avoid throwing interceptions. He also was Penn's second leading rusher in the game, carrying the ball eight times for 67 yards. For the season, he rushed the ball 17 times for 87 yards and a touchdown.
Penn finsihed the season 4-2 overall and 3-1 in CSFL play. The Quakers finished second in the Collegiate Sprint Football League.
