PRINCETON — The Princeton Senior High School Tigers football team finished with two wins for the 2019-2020 school year.

The Tigers took a loss to Nicholas County High School last week to finish their regular season. Despite only having two wins this season the Tigers have experienced progress having only won one game last season. This year has been tough for Princeton for many reasons. Aside from a tough schedule, the Tigers have had a lot of key injuries to the team which has forced players to step up. Princeton essentially adopted the next man up mentality for its season this year.

Heading into last week’s game coach Chris Pedigo didn’t believe that his team was approaching the final game with a “lets get it over with mentality” he felt good about his group going out there competing hard whether win or lose.

“We have a great group of young kids to head into the offseason with,” Pedigo said. “We have some linemen that are coming that I am very excited about. The weight room has to be the main focus as we get into our offseason.”

Pedigo mentioned that he expects a much better offseason participation during this offseason which could get the ball rolling for the Tigers as they get ready for next season. getting healthy for the Tigers will be very important as they have been unable to be at full strength at any point during the season. Princeton felt like they had a strong last month of the season regarding practices which should provide some momentum for the offseason.

Princeton is young at all the skill positions and they should be excited for what they have returning for next season. With a strong offseason and a clean bill of health the Tigers could be right in the thick of things next season.
