Princeton gradually kept dropping in the years after Mancuso. Coach Mancuso was a great rival one of those that if you played against him you hated him but if you played for him you loved him. From discussions I've had with former players he was a really great guy that cared about his players. He also was a master at legally bringing in top talent. I remember players transferring in from Middletown and old Forest Park and making their team a state competitor. Man if Yappi had been around then the Moeller Princeton Banter would have been heated banter full of all kinds of accusations. It was a great rivlary with a lot of respect and animosity. I don't think it will ever reach that level again. Many of good football games were played with a lot of great talent on both sides of the ball.
