CLEVELAND – University of New Hampshire junior offensive lineman Chris Zarkoskie (West Caldwell, N.J.) was tabbed to the 14th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) Academic All-Star Team on Tuesday.
Zarkoskie, who played in 11 games and served as UNH's starting left guard this past season, boasts a cumulative 3.54 grade point average as a psychology major. He previously earned a berth on the 2011 Capital One Academic All-District ® Football Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
During the 2010-11 academic year, Zarkoskie garnered the CAA Academic Award, was named to the CAA Academic All-Conference Team and was nominated for the Allstate American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team ®, which recognizes the selfless contributions to volunteerism and community service made by college football student-athletes across the nation.
