Strong Punting Effort Earns Arny ECFC Special Teams Player of the Week
THROGGS NECK, N.Y. (September 23, 2013) – On Monday, freshman punter John Arny (Metuchen, N.J./Metuchen) was announced as the recipient of the ECFC Special Teams Player of the Week with his strong showing on Saturday afternoon against Kings Point.
With just two punts in the second half, Arny averaged 53 yards per kick and has now raised his average yards-per-punt to 45.7 on the year.
On his first punt of the game, Arny sent the ball away for 48 yards to the opponent's 20-yard line. The rookie followed that with another superb punt against a steady wind that went for a career-best 58 yards that pinned Kings Point back at its own 11-yard line.
This weekend, Maritime heads back on the road for its third game of the season when the squad travels to Wayne, N.J. to take on William Paterson for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
