Plymouth State University graduate student Zach Ziemba, of Manchester, was selected to the D3football.com All-East Region Team following a vote of Division III East Region sports information directors and D3football.com staff.
Ziemba was one of 77 players chosen from a group of 321 nominated student-athletes. Players nominated for All-Region are eligible to be considered for D3football.com All-America honors, which will be announced Dec. 15.
Ziemba was named to the All-East Region Third Team Defense. Ziemba becomes the fifth Panther to earn the recognition. A 5-11, 190-pound safety, Ziemba was instrumental in helping to lead the Panthers back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2008 season. He finished the year with 55 tackles and was second in the MASCAC with two fumble recoveries.
