More Honors for Zenner, Witzmann



Bookmark and Share

BROOKINGS, S.D. — For the second time this week, South Dakota State University football players Bryan Witzmann and Zach Zenner have been named to a Football Championship Subdivision All-America Team. Wednesday, both players were named to the Associated Press FCS All-America Second Team.


A junior offensive tackle from Houlton, Wis., Witzmann anchored a Jackrabbit offensive line that led the way for Zenner to reach 2,000 yards and record averages of 23.4 points and 367.6 yards of total offense per game. Witzmann has started at left tackle each of the Jackrabbits' 35 games over the past three seasons, earning first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference honors in 2012 after an honorable mention selection in 2011.


Zenner, a sophomore running back from Eagan, Minn., was named to his third All-America team in the last two weeks. Honored earlier by the American Football Coaches Association, Zenner has since regained the lead in the FCS rushing race with 2,044 yards for an average of 157.2 yards per game. He crossed the 100-yard mark in nine games and topped 200 yards three times, including a school-record 295 yards in the opening round of the FCS playoffs Nov. 24 versus Eastern Illinois. Zenner averaged 6.8 yards per carry and scored 13 touchdowns on the ground, while adding 28 receptions for 197 yards.


Both Witzmann and Zenner were honored on the Sports Network FCS All-America First Team on Dec. 10.

South Dakota State finished the 2012 season with a 9-4 overall record, including a runner-up mark of 6-2 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. The Jackrabbits' nine wins were their most in a season at the Division I level as they made their second playoff appearance in four seasons.
