PEI Privateers Team History
The PEI Privateers entered the Maritime Football League as an expansion team in 2004 and quickly became one of the top offensive threats in the league. The Privateers are proudly a provincial team, drawing players from all across the Island to compete in the MFL.
The Privateers’ team history has centered around a core of dedicated veteran players and upstart youth who have helped guide and develop the team. In 2009, the Privateers made their first Mariner Bowl appearance and this success was achieved through a combination of sponsor support like that from long-time sponsor B.J.’s Truck Centre, off-field organization, and a skilled and unified team approach. In recent years the team’s growth and success has been driven by a committed and focused group of leaders including the 2009 MFL Volunteer of the Year, General Manager Terry Allen, 2010 MFL Most Outstanding Player, Quarterback Chris “Tex” Mutch, All-Star Runningback Dave Clark, and long time Defensive standout Keighan Scott. With loyal commitment from veteran players and the growing support of the Island community, the Privateers have been able to build skill, compete, and promote quality tackle football for the province of PEI. Notable contributors to laying a foundation for the Privateers include Matt Holzer, Joe Puiia, Neil Connaughton, Danny Comeau, Colin Stewart and Mark MacDougall - the current Head Coach for the 2011 AFL Champion Holland College Hurricanes.
Many Senior Men's Privateers give back to the island football programs during the off-season through coaching Varsity and Bantam Privateers Club teams, coaching other Island club teams, and assisting with flag and tackle skills development camps for upcoming youth through Football PEI. The Privateers have also refocused their efforts and are increasing their presence in the Island community through charitable activities such as CIBC's Run for the Cure and their annual ‘Pink Game’ promoting Breast Cancer Awareness.
Although they have not yet clinched an MFL championship, the competitive, tenacious, and aggressive Privateers team is positioning itself to win and is looking to improve on previous successes.
