The Best of the B1G, #18 Zach Zwinak

b1g_iconZach Zwinak (RB/FB) is heading into his senior year at Penn State. He is from Frederick, Maryland. As a high school recruit, Zach was offered from many schools such as Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Maryland, Virginia Tech, Boston College and more. He was ranked the number one fullback by Zach also was given four stars from Scout and Rivals. There is no doubt his breakout year was the 2012 season.


Zach is going to be a huge factor for Penn State’s offense. With a competition for a starting quarterback, it is nice for the Penn State offense to have a steady running back. In his 2012 season, he ran for 1000 yards off of 203 attempts. Considering the fact that Zach only ran for 7 yards last year, Zach had a breakout year this past season. He is going to be the leader and the biggest contributor for the Penn State Offense.

Short highlights on Zach:

With all the controversy that happened at Penn State, it is hard not to show respect to the Penn State players for competing every game without a chance to make a bowl. Watching Zach throughout the season, he played every game with determination. It is going to be interesting to watch the Penn State offense with a new quarterback and a very experienced half back coming into this season.
