"He's doing what he's supposed to do in this offense and he's become a pretty good quarterback for us."
For the season, Reed has completed 64 of 100 passes for 700 yards. As for rushing, Kevic Watkins and Ryan Broderick lead the team.
The key for the Red Dragons lies on the defensive side, though, Stoffel said, as the team has allowed an average of 46 points per contest.
"For us, we have to win this football game on defense," he said. "Our offense is certainly producing yardage, we just haven't produced points on the board. The defense, we have to get out on third down. Third downs have been our nemesis for the last year and a half. We have to learn to get off the field on third down."
St. Albans must stop the Princeton rushing attack, led by Tahj Sho-Johnson, in order to get off the field. Johnson ranks among the state's top AAA rushers with 92 carries for 624 yards and 11 touchdowns. In addition to Sho-Johnson, Peek said wingbacks Jordan Jones and Aaron Saunders provide solid running options, as well as quarterback Jay Palmer.
"We're trying to get to the edge more," Peek said of the Tigers' running scheme. "Early in the season no one was trying to take away the dive, so the dive was very successful with Tahj. Now, people are starting to take away the dive, so we've got to get to the edge, and we've done that the last couple weeks running the triple (option)."
There's no mistaking Princeton doesn't prefer to pass, as Palmer has completed just 12 of 39 attempts this season.
Stoffel said he's aware of the Princeton plan and the mission to stop the run is clear.
"They run hard," he said. "They've bought into what they do and the run the ball downhill hard. They're good at what they do. They don't have a lot of variance and they dare you to stop them. So far, they've been successful. I know that they're 2-3 or 2-4, but they're not a bad football team."
Regardless of postseason chances, Peek said Princeton hopes to finish the season strong beginning Friday.
"It'll be great if we can get back on a winning track," he said. "I don't know that 6-4 will get us in the playoffs, but we would like to try and win out."
