BROOKINGS, SD — South Dakota State players Seth Daughters and Zach Zenner were named Thursday to the Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Directors Association Academic All-Star Team presented by KP Sports.

A senior tight end from Winner, Daughters earned a spot on the honor squad with a 3.72 grade-point average while majoring in exercise science. During the 2012 season, Daughters caught 17 passes for 134 yards with three touchdowns. A team captain, he earned a spot on the Missouri Valley Football Conference All-Academic Second Team in 2012.

Zenner, a sophomore running back from Eagan, Minn., made the all-academic team with a 3.78 GPA while majoring in biology/pre-medicine. Previously selected as a member of the Capital One Academic All-America Second Team, Zenner leads the FCS ranks with an average of 157.2 yards per game. He posted a Division I-best 2,044 yards this season in earning a spot on four different All-America teams.

A total of 54 players were honored on the FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team.

Zenner also was one of three Jackrabbits honored on the inaugural College Sports Journal FCS All-Academic Team. Joining him on the 42-player team were junior offensive lineman Taylor Suess and sophomore wide receiver/punt returner Jason Schneider. Both members of the Capital One Academic All-District Team earlier this season, Suess carries a 3.95 GPA in mechanical engineering, while Schneider has compiled a 3.98 GPA while majoring in pre-pharmacy.
