LANCASTER, Pa. -- Jordan Zackery was named to the 15th annual D3football.com All-America Third Team as a return specialist. The All-America honor is the first for Zackery and the first under head coach John Troxell.
The honor marks the 43rd time a member of the football team has received All-America recognition and the first since Dan Eggertsson '04 received the award in 2004.
Zackery (York, Pa. / William Penn) picks up his fourth postseason award this year, earning First Team All-Centennial Conference (CC) accolades as both a receiver and returner, second team all-region honors from D3football.com and a first team spot on the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) South All-Star Team.
He put together the second best punt return average in the country with an 18.9 average and scored on two punt returns. The junior added 573 yards on 23 kick returns, had 809 receiving yards with seven scores and took over the top spot in F&M history for all-purpose yards in a season with 1,730.
F&M went 7-4 this year and finished the season with a dominant 38-14 victory over Delaware Valley in the ECAC Southeast Bowl Game, its fourth bowl appearance in the last five seasons.
