 South Dakota State University running back Zach Zenner was named Tuesday to the The Sports Network FCS Preseason All-America First Team.

Zenner, who will enter his senior season this fall, has earned All-America recognition from The Sports Network and several other organizations each of the past two seasons. He burst onto the Football Championship Subdivision scene during the 2012 season, leading the nation in rushing with 2,044 yards and an average of 157.2 yards per game.

In 2013, Zenner became only the second player in FCS history to rush for 2,000 yards in two different seasons, tallying 2,015 yards and ranking third in the nation with an average of 143.9 yards per game. The Eagan, Minnesota, native also scored 25 touchdowns — 23 rushing and two receiving — in helping lead the Jackrabbits to back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time in program history.

Zenner already holds the Missouri Valley Football Conference career record for all-purpose yards with 5,861, and his 4,529 career rushing yards are only 218 yards away from the league career rushing mark currently held by Herb Donaldson of Western Illinois (4,746 yards from 2005-08).

South Dakota State is scheduled to kick off the 2014 season Aug. 30 at Missouri.
