Scouting the Privateers
Maritime enters off of three straight loses and looking to snap its skid against Anna Maria on Saturday afternoon. This is uncharted waters for Maritime, as they have not had a three-game losing streak to start a season since the program's first varsity campaign in 2006.

Despite their record, Maritime has outrushed its opponents by nearly 300 yards this season and has picked up 15 more rushing first downs than its three opponents combined in 2013. The Privateers are almost near perfect when reaching the red zone, scoring 6-of-7 times when inside the opponent's 20-yard line, four of which were touchdowns.

Junior fullback Kyle Gardner leads the squad in rushing with 146 yards in three game (48.7 YpG), senior running back Frank Laino is second with 98-yards gained on 11 carries (32.7 YpG). Freshman quarterback Isaiah Covington, making his home debut as the starting signal-caller has 146 yards on 44 carries (48.7 YpG).

On the defensive side of the ball, junior Nick Coffiey leads the team with 22 tackles and also has a forced fumble and a fumble recovery to his credit this season. Sophomore linebacker Kameron Knight is second on the team with 20 tackles, the second-year player also has an interception and two fumble recoveries this year. Junior Duke Alvora wraps-up the top three defensive leaders with 18 wrap-ups through three games. Senior Chris Klass and junior Hugh O'Brien also have double-figures in tackles this year as well.

Sophomore kicker Diogo Dietrich and freshman punter John Arny handle the special teams duties for the team. Dietrich is 3-for-4 on field goals with a season-long 37-yarder. He has also amassed 661 yards on a dozen kickoffs. Arny has totaled 262 yards on six punts for a 37.4 average with two pinned back inside the opponent's 20-yard line.

Scouting the Amcats
Anna Maria enters with a 1-2 record and come off of a shutout loss a week ago to the Cardinals of Catholic University (D.C.). In the game, Anna Maria picked up just 12 first downs and were a combined 0-for-15 on 3rd and 4th down efficiency. In terms of total offense, the Cardinals collected 648 yards to Anna Maria's 219 total yards.

Anna Maria is a run-first team, and the player in the backfield to watch is senior running back Robert Small, who has 449 yards and five rushing touchdowns in three games (149.7 YpG). Second on the team is freshman Chris Bettano with 112 yards on 29 carries.

In the air, three different quarterbacks have taken snaps and attempted at least 21 throws this season. Rookie Gregory McGoldrick leads the trio in terms of completion percent at 66.7% with 16 of his 24 passes caught. Junior John Lamothe heads the threesome with a pair of touchdowns in the air. Junior Joshua Sundquist and sophomore William Ricard lead the team with 11 catches each and are the only two with over 100-yards receiving. Ricard has two receiving touchdowns as well.

On defense, senior Jordan Koehler leads the team with 30 tackles including his team-high 18 a week ago at Catholic. Classmate Tony Valente is close behind with 27 tackles and also has a sack and a team-best three forced fumbles on the year. Sophomore lineman Tyler Rocha (18) and freshman linebacker Alex Rezendes (16) are the only other players with more than 14 tackles.

Sophomore Julian Diaz is in charge of the kicking duties but hasn't had a field goal chance this season; he is 3-for-6 on extra points. Freshman punter Stefano Marziale already has totaled 22 punts this season for 748 yards (34.0 avg.); four of his punts have ended inside the opponent 20-yard line. Bettano will also be a player to watch on returns as the rookie has 347 returns yards on 15 kickoff and punt returns; he also has a 94-yard return for a touchdown on a kickoff against Maine Maritime.
