In just his third game after taking over the primary returning duties, Caneparo amassed 149 yards on six kickoff returns for an average of 24.8 yards per return in the Privateers' 31-29 home victory over Mount Ida on Saturday. The 5-7, 155-pound freshman had two long returns in the game, the first was a 59-yard return in the first quarter that gave Maritime possession in the Mustangs' red zone and the second came in the fourth quarter, a 43-yard return that started the Privateers on Mount Ida's side of the field. Maritime wound up scoring the eventual game-winning touchdown on that drive.
