OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
(So, QB - Putnam Valley, N.Y. / JFK Catholic )
Trodden amassed a career-high 128 passing yards for the Privateers, going 12-for-18 on competitions with one pass touchdown. He also registered 55 rushing yards for Maritime in the 13-7 win over arch-rival Kings Point. He was a major part of seven important plays in the late-fourth-quarter drive that sealed the victory, including one first-down run and two first-down passes (one, his longest completion of the day, was a 24-yard pass on a 3rd-and-10 play).
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
(Jr, DE - Jacksonville, Fla./University Christian)
Up by six points midway through the fourth quarter, Boney made an important sack for Maritime in the red zone on a Kings Point 4th-and-2 play from the Privateers' 12-yard line that turned the ball over on downs and gave Maritime the ball for the final drive. He ended the day with five total tackles (3 solo and 2 assisted) in the 13-7 win in the 3rd Annual "Seafaring Scuffle" over Merchant Marine.
