BROOKINGS, SD — South Dakota State University running back Zach Zenner has been named to his fifth different All-America squad, earning a spot on the College Sporting News 2012 Fabulous Fifty FCS All-America Team.

A sophomore from Eagan, Minn., Zenner led the Division I Football Championship Subdivision rushing race with 2,044 yards for an average of 157.2 yards per game during the recently completed 2012 season. 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.

Zenner was one of five running backs named to the team, whose 50 members are selected regardless of position.

Zenner was honored earlier on All-America teams selected by the American Football Coaches Association (first team), Sports Network (first team) Walter Camp Football Foundation (first team) and Associated Press (second team). He also finished seventh in the recent balloting for the Walter Payton Award as the top player in the FCS ranks.

Zenner’s teammate, linebacker T.J. Lally, was named Tuesday to the College Sports Journal Football Championship Subdivision Freshman All-America Team.

A Chicago native, Lally started all 13 games during the 2012 season and finished second on the team with 107 tackles. In addition, he shared the team lead with six sacks, ranked third with eight tackles for loss and added two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Lally, who was a finalist for the Jerry Rice Award as the top freshman in the FCS ranks, was a second-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection and was named to the league’s All-Newcomer Team. He was honored as the MVFC Newcomer of the Week on four occasions in 2012.

Lally was one of 13 MVFC players honored on the 63-player squad — the most from any FCS conference.
