J. Meric

The Ivy League standout will be part of the game.

For the first time since 2002, the Princeton Tigers will have a representative in the East-West Shrine Game. Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year Mike Catapano will test his skills against some of the best in the country next month.

Catapano led the Ivy League with 12 sacks in the 2012 season. His 1.2 sacks per game were second in the FCS. He had 41 tackles, and helped the Princeton Tigers finish with their first winning record since in conference play since 2006.

Princeton has only had two invitees to the game since 1994. In 2002, the school's representative was Taylor Northop, and in 1994, Keith Elias played in the game.

Catapano and a roster full of football's finest will take the field on January 19, 2013 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. The game was first played in 1925 and is the longest-running college football all-star game.
