Zenner National Player Of The Week



Bookmark and Share

BROOKINGS, S.D. — South Dakota State University running back Zach Zenner has been honored by a pair of national organizations for his record-setting performance Sept. 7 against the University of North Dakota.

 

A junior from Eagan, Minn., Zenner was selected as National Offensive Player of the Week by the Sports Network and earned both National Performer of the Week and National Running Back of the Week accolades from College Football Performance Awards. He also was named Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday.

 

Zenner tied his own single-game school record with 295 yards rushing in a 35-28 Jackrabbit victor, scoring a career-high four touchdowns — three rushing and one receiving. He also rushed for 295 yards in the first round of the 2012 Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs versus Eastern Illinois. A candidate for the Walter Payton Award as the top player in the FCS ranks, Zenner has topped the 200-yard mark four times in his career and owns three of the top five rushing performances in school history.

 

South Dakota State, which is ranked sixth in both the Sports Network media and FCS Coaches polls, hosts Southeastern Louisiana in the 47th Annual Beef Bowl Saturday. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium.
