PHILADELPHIA Sprint football closes out its season on Friday night in Princeton when they take on the Princeton Tigers. The two teams have met once this season with the Quakers coming out on top, 60-7 at Franklin Field. The Quakers stand at 3-2 on the season and are 2-1 in CSFL play. The Tigers are 0-5 and 0-3 in league play.
The Quakers, despite falling to Navy last week, can clinch a share of the CSFL championship with a win tonight coupled with a Navy loss. The championship would be the first for the Quakers since 2000.
Rob Lombardi will be playing his final game for the Quakers at running back. The senior from Parkland, Fla. enters the game leading the CSFL in rushing with 437 yards. He has five total touchdowns for the year.
Tomas Altamirano enters the game seventh all-time in receiving yards for the Quakers with 558. He has a realistic chance to move as high as fifth in his final game in the Red and Blue.
Quarterback Michael D'Angelo is on the cusp of entering the record books as well. He currently has 686 yards passing on the season. If he can throw for 90 yards tonight, he will vault to second on the list of passing yards in a season.
A win tonight will give head coach Bill Wagner his first winning season since 2004. The Quakers are 49-41-2 all-time against Princeton, and will be looking to hit the half-century mark in wins tonight.
