PRINCETON, N.J. – Cornell finds itself in first place in the Ivy League after scoring three touchdowns and four life-altering brain injuries to defeat their rival Princeton.
After nailing the game-winning field goal, kicker Ricky Fleming ’20 told reporters, “This team does whatever it takes to get the W, which includes sacrificing blood, sweat, tears, and living brain cells.”
With the game on the line, Cornell was able to overcome a twelve point fourth-quarter deficit through a flawless two-minute offense and perfect execution of the patented “dive headfirst into a hard object” play. The Red finished with 365 yards and four players who won’t be able to chew food by age 33.
Trudy Johnston, mother of wide receiver Travis Johnston ‘18, was ecstatic following the win. “My boy scored his first touchdown today! Yeah he ran into the field goal post and now can’t count to five, but no pain no gain, baby!”
Cornell looks to build on its success this week by putting in some extra hours in the film room and renting out a floor at Cayuga Medical.
