QB Zulli best in Division II
FLORENCE, ALA. — Shippensburg quarterback Zach Zulli won the Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in Division II after a record-setting junior season.
Zulli received the award Friday night on the eve of the national championship game at the University of North Alabama. He set NCAA Division II records by accounting for 336 points and 56 touchdowns, and tied the national record with 54 touchdown passes.
“This is just ridiculous. I never would have expected this,” said Zulli, who had never flown before the plane trip to Alabama. “Being here is incredible..”
Zulli had 202 points in balloting by Division II sports information directors for a 64-point margin over Missouri Western State back Michael Hill.
