KINGS POINT, N.Y. – For the second time this season and for the second time in five weeks, junior quarterback Alex Coviello was selected Mariners' men's athlete of the week on Monday.
Coviello was honored for the week ending on Sunday, Nov. 13.
The Cape Coral, Fla. native ran for 135 yards and threw for 164 more and three touchdowns to pace the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy to a 31-24 Liberty victory over Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the season finale for both teams on Saturday.
Coviello must like playing against teams on the road with the name Polytechnic Institute as he ran for a career-high 243 yards in a 34-27 away victory over Worcester Polytechnic Institute on Oct. 8.
