More lists! You can find John Thompson III and Joe Scott in a peer poll of the top 25 X's and O's coaches.

Thirteen Ivy League coaches were asked "Which six players in the conference would you most want on your team, regardless of position?" Just one Princeton returnee was a given response.
Will Venable was named the National League Player of the Week for the stretch ending August 18. A simple approach allowed Venable to become a complete player during his hitting streak, which ended at 15 games.
On Friday night San Diego came from six runs down to beat the Chicago Cubs. In addition to a two run triple off the top of the center field wall, Venable hammered a home run (video) to send the Padres in front late.
Going 9-22 at the plate after a lone hitless performance, Venable's season average has risen all the way to .272. He went deep again (video) on Saturday, HR number 19 for the former Princeton player.
Mike Brennan and American have released their 2013-14 schedule.
