Privateers To Be Celebrating The 40-Year Anniversary Of Football Starting At Maritime

Putting aside two short seasons way back in the 1890's, the Maritime football team began here on campus "full time" in 1971, 40 years ago. The team stuck around for 17 out of 18 years until 1988, when the program was discontinued. The Privateers were born again in 2005, when Clayton Kendrick-Holmes was hired as the new head coach that helped build the current team into a championship program.

 

For Saturday's game, Maritime will be inviting back all players and coaches from the previous era of Privateer football for the school's Homecoming festivities, as well as recent graduates of the modern era of the program. It will be sure to be a great atmosphere at Reinhart Field!

 

Privateers Honored Six Times With ECFC Player Of The Week Accolades

The Maritime football team has had a Player of the Week by the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference a conference-high six times so far in 2011. After the Week Two win over Western Connecticut, seniors Jamie Spanopoulos and Madison Leary (Tavares, Fla./Tavares) earned Offensive and Special Teams Player of the Week accolades, respectively. Sophomore Tyler Trodden (Putnam Valley, N.Y./JFK Catholic) and junior Thomas Boney (Jacksonville, Fla./University Christian)  earned offensive and defensive awards, respectively, after the Week Three win over Kings Point. Leary was again named Special Teams Player of the Week twice more for Weeks Five and Six.

 

Inside The Series

This will be the third meeting between Anna Maria and Maritime, as the AMCATS program began in the 2009 season. The Privateers have won both of the previous games: 61-21 at home in 2009 and 43-20 on the road in Paxton, Mass., during the 2010 season.

 

In last year's contest, then-junior fullback Jamie Spanopoulos (Franklin Square, N.Y./H. Frank Carey) scored two rushing touchdowns and led the Privateer ground attack with 84 yards on the day. Maritime recorded a total of 280 rushing yards and outgained the AMCATs 379-272 in total offense in the game. On defense, then-sophomore linebacker Keith Barnes (Westbury, N.Y./Westbury) led all players with seven tackles, while classmate Pat Lasher (Seaford, N.Y./Seaford) recorded 5.5 tackles and an interception that was returned for 40 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.

 

Team Comparison Of National Rankings

The Maritime total offense ranks 108th in the country, but the rushing offense is 16th (256.6 yards per game), while the AMCAT's total defense is 237th allowing 523.8 yards per game. On the flip side, the Privateer defense is 12th in the nation allowing just 233.6 yards per game, while Anna Maria's offense is 109th with        358.6 yards per game.

 

Maritime ranks in the top 10 in the country in five categories: fourth in time of possession (35:20 minutes per game) and tackles for losses allowed (3.0 per game), fifth in sacks allowed (0.4 per game), seventh in fumbles lost (1) and eighth in kickoff return (26.29 yards per game). Anna Maria ranks in the top 10 in just one category, as they are 2nd in DIII with 11 fumbles recovered.

Anna Maria comes into Saturday's game with an 0-5 record overall thus far in 2011, including an 0-3 mark in ECFC action, under third-year head coach Marc Klaiman. The AMCATS are still looking for their first program victory.

The place kicking duties lie on the feet of junior Jamal Mitchell, who has made 2-of-3 field goals on the season: one from 25 yards and another from 22 yards. He has also converted 16 of 19 PATs and on 24 kickoffs has averaged 40.9 yards per kick.
