Scouting the Privateers
Maritime, still in search of its first win, comes off of its best defensive effort since last season on October 6 when it also held Becker to seven points. Offensively Maritime put up six points after freshman quarterback Ryan Heizman (Commack, N.Y./Commack) connected on a 47-yard pass to connect with junior running back Greg Caneparo (Nanuet, N.Y./Nanuet) for the lone score of the game for Maritime.

Leading the team in the rushing department after playing in both games has been junior Kyle Gardner (Amityville N.Y./St. Anthony's ) with 22 rushes and 79-yards gained, Caneparo leads the team with a pair of rushing touchdowns from the team's first game of the season against Mass. Maritime.

Playing in just one game, Heizman leads the team with four completions for 85 yards and one passing touchdown. In the receiving department, Caneparo leads the squad with a pair of catches for 70 yards, while senior wide receiver Sean Belsky (West Islip, N.Y./St. John the Baptist ) has three catches for 49 yards.

On the defensive side of the ball, junior Nick Coffiey (Wilmington, Del./Delaware Military Academy) leads the unit with 16 tackles and a team-best 12 unassisted tackles. Sophomore Kameron Knight (Clayton, N.C./West Johnson) also has 16 total tackles with eight of those of the unassisted variety. Coffiey, Knight, and juniors Hugh O'Brien (Westbury, N.Y./Westbury) and Chris Shehata (Lynbrook, N.Y./Lynbrook) are all tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with a pair each.

The special teams unit has been highlighted by the punting game as both junior Duke Alvora (Harrison, N.Y./Harrison) and freshman John Arny (Metuchen, N.J./Metuchen) have split punting duties and have averaged just under 40-yards per punt over their seven combined punts. Maritime also had its first punt return last week, and senior Chris Klass (Nanuet, N.Y./Nanuet ) took it back for 18 yards against Kings Point.

Scouting the Pioneers
William Paterson returns home for its first home contest of the year after going 1-2 on the road to start the season. The turnover bug has bitten the Pioneers with seven turnovers against (3 interceptions, 4 fumbles lost) through the first three contests.

William Paterson is a pass-first team as it has picked up 41 of their 70 first downs this season by way of the air. The Pioneers also have six passing touchdowns as Ryan Gresik has completed 86 passes for 900 yards. He has spread the wealth in terms of his receivers as four players have 10 or more receptions, led by Mick Paye with 18 and Brian Winfield with 17. Five different players have caught touchdown passes, with two finding the arms of Darius Kersey.

Matt Delana leads the team in rushing the rock with 19 rushes for 70 yards, including a season-best 42 yards last weekend against Cortland. Kersey is also second on the team in rushing with 52 yards on 18 carries and has the team's lone rushing touchdown with one against Cortland.

The Pioneers are led by a pair of players with over 20 tackles through three games this year as Ben Allen has 26 and David Zurla has 25 tackles, including a team-best eight a week ago. Elijah DeGuzman is third on the team with 17 total tackles. In addition to tackles, Allen leads the team in tackles for loss with seven. Second on the team is Zurla and Pat Thomas, who have four each.

On special teams, Julian Frazier handles the punting duties with 16 kicks and 694 yards including a season-long 71-yard punt against the Red Dragons last week. Four of his seven punts have been pinned inside opponent's 20-yard line. Robert Sinegra, who has converted on 3-of-5 this year with a season-long 46-yard field goal, has handled the kicking duties.
