        THROGGS NECK, N.Y. (Feb. 13, 2014) – This past Monday night, Feb. 10, the Maritime football program, special VIPS, a number family members and alumni all gathered at the Special Events Room on campus to celebrate the 2013 season with the team's annual awards banquet. Ninth-year head coach Clayton Kendrick-Holmes served as the emcee for the night's festivities.
 
        It was a fantastic event that began with a highlight reel video made by assistant coach Vincent DiGaetano of the team's key plays from the 10 games of the season. The video ended with a tribute to the Privateers' nine graduating seniors.
 
        After that, those in attendance feasted on a great meal prepared by Chartwells before the awards portion of the night began.
 
        The first awards given out were the team's WARFACE awards for the program's core attributes of Work Ethic, Accountability, Respect, Family, Character and Enthusiasm. The following were the winners for each category:

  • Work Ethic – Senior Frank Laino (Rockaway, N.Y./Fort Hamilton)
  • Accountability – Senior Noah Collins (Satellite Beach, Fla./Satellite)
  • Respect – Junior Greg Caneparo (Nanuet, N.Y./Nanuet)
  • Family – Captains seniors Robert Marziliano (Staten Island, N.Y./Tottenville), Andrew Cosby (Babylon, N.Y./Babylon), Chris Klass (Nanuet, N.Y./Nanuet ) and junior Duke Alvora (Harrison, N.Y./Harrison).
  • Character – Senior Sean Belsky (West Islip, N.Y./St. John the Baptist )
  • Enthusiasm – Freshman Mark Tooma (Monroe-Woodbury, N.Y./Monroe-Woodbury)
 
        And the Overall WARFACE Awards went to junior Chris Shehata (Lynbrook, N.Y./Lynbrook) and senior Chrisrichard Jean-Baptiste (Westbury, N.Y./Westbury).
 
        The Student Manager of the Year Award went to sophomore Shamus McDaniel (Islip Terrace, N.Y./East Islip).
 
        Then it was time to recognize the program's attack/scout players:
  • Offensive Attack Player of the Year – Sophomore Patrick Connick (Spanish Fort, Ala./Spanish Fort)
  • Defensive Attack Player of the Year – Freshman Sam Feliciano (Orlando, Fla./Colonial)
  • Special Teams Red Hat Player of the Year – Freshman John Brown (Keystone Heights, Fla./Keystone Heights)
 
        The Assistant Coach of the Year Award went to Defensive Line Coach Tom Schaller. Schaller has been with the program for six seasons and has built a fierce defensive line over that time. This past season helped lead Hugh O'Brien (Westbury, N.Y./Westbury) to an All-ECFC First Team Defense selection and also got great production out of junior Jimmy Daly (Oceanside, N.Y./Oceanside) and sophomores Andrew Auriemma (Melville, N.Y./St. Anthony's) and Michael Brunk (Hidden Valley Lake, Calif./Glenwood Springs (Colo.)), among others.
 
        The "most improved" awards were next and they went to:
  • Offensive Most Improved Player – Junior Kyle Gardner (Amityville N.Y./St. Anthony's )
  • Defensive Most Improved Player – Senior Andrew Vazquez (Yonkers, N.Y./Sacred Heart)
  • Special Teams Most Improved Player – Freshman John Arny (Metuchen, N.J./Metuchen)
 
        Then then specialty awards for offensive and defense were given out for the "Offensive Ax" (most defenders knocked down) and the "Defensive Hammer" (best tackles at the best times). Junior Casey Boos (West Sayville, N.Y./Sayville) won the Ax Award, while junior Hugh O'Brien took home the Hammer.
 
        The academic awards were next and the Privateers celebrated the success of those student-athletes that were named to the school's Dean's List and Admiral's List. They also honored the student-athletes that were named to the All-ECFC Academic Team: Sophomores Beau Warrington (Milford, Del./Sussex Technical), Brandon Kuster (Woodstock, N.Y./Kingston) and Michael Brunk. After that, the program recognized Warrington and Brunk for being named to the CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-District Team.
 
        The final six awards of the evening were up next and they started with the Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams MVPs.
 
        Senior Andrew Cosby won the Offensive MVP after a First Team All-ECFC season as the Privateers' center. It was a fitting end to Cosby's collegiate career as he was named to the First Team each of the past three seasons.
 
        Junior Nick Coffiey (Wilmington, Del./Delaware Military Academy) was named the team's Defensive MVP as he enjoyed great success on the field for Maritime. He led the team with 95 total tackles, including 4.5 for losses and two sacks. Coffiey also had two fumble recoveries and one interception on the season.
 
        It was no surprise that sophomore kicker Diogo Dietrich (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil/DePaul Catholic) was named the Privateers' Special Team's Player of the Year. He also earned the same honor from the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference coaches along with a First Team All-ECFC Offense accolade. Dietrich led Maritime in scoring this year with 51 points on 24 PATs and a program-best nine field goals throughout the 2013 season. On 46 kickoffs, Dietrich averaged 52.0 yards per kick with six touchbacks.
 
        Two specialty awards were next - the "John J. Pankovic Sportsmanship Award," presented by football alum Paul Pedretti, which went to senior Dan Fleischman (North Massapequa, N.Y./Plainedge), and the "Coach Charlie Munsch Outstanding Achievement Award," presented by alum Tom Higgins to senior Noah Collins.
 
        The Team Most Valuable Player Award went to junior Hugh O'Brien. O'Brien was selected to the First Team All-ECFC Defense as a defensive lineman. He recorded 57 total tackles on the season and led the squad with 15.0 tackles for losses and eight sacks. He had two fumbles recoveries, two quarterback hurries, one forced fumble, one pass defended and one pass breakup on the season.
 
        The Privateers finished the 2013 season with an even 5-5 record, including a 7-6 season-ending victory over then-undefeated #25 Gallaudet University. It was the program's first win over a ranked opponent and that win kept Maritime's 2010 season as the ECFC's only undefeated championship season. The non-traditional Spring Season will begin later this semester as the program will look to begin preparations for the 2014 season.
