Princeton scored more than 50 points for the third consecutive week and remains squarely in the hunt for another Ivy League title after torching Harvard Friday night in front of a national television audience.
The Tigers offense has so many options at the disposal of QB Chad Kanoff, but at the top of the list is 6-4, 200-pound junior wide receiver Jesper Horsted.
A native of Minnesota who is a two-sport standout for Princeton, Horsted had 13 catches for 246 yards and a pair of touchdown receptions and also threw a two-yard TD pass to nail down the Uplifting Athletes Rare Performance of the Week honors.
Horsted, who leads the Ivy League in receptions this season, posted the third highest receiving yards total in school history with his performance against Harvard. He has 55 catches for 712 yards and eight touchdowns in six games.
As a member of the baseball team, Horsted finished third on the team in hitting last season with a .281 average and was an All-Ivy selection in football and baseball as a sophomore.
