ALLENTOWN, Pa. – At the 2015 Globe Bowl at Salisbury High School in mid-April, Maritime football senior Greg Caneparo (Nanuet, N.Y./Nanuet) was selected as the offensive most valuable player for one of the two all-star teams participating in the event.
"It was an awesome opportunity to play in the 2015 Globe Bowl," said Caneparo. "I had the chance to play with some top Division I and II players, as well as pro free agents, and it was a great test for me to see where I stood against players from other teams and areas."
Caneparo helped the white team upend the red team by a score of 24-14, and chipped in with a three-yard touchdown score to put his side ahead by a 14-0 mark in the first half.
"It was a great honor and blessing to both play and be named as offensive MVP," Caneparo added.
In addition to the offensive MVP accolades given to Caneparo for the white team, team defensive MVP went to Frank Gaffney of Division III Lebanon Valley. The red team's offensive MVP was Nahum Purdie of Division II Cheyney, while the red team's defensive MVP was Brandon Ross of Ave Maria University.
