The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Zimmer, a sophomore transfer from Duquesne who graduated from Penn-Trafford, led Seton Hill this season with school records of 121 tackles, 29 tackles for loss and 12 sacks.
It is the third award this season to Zimmer, who earlier was named to the Daktronics Super Region I and West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference first team.

The team also paired with Family Care for Children and Youth in December to provide Christmas gifts for foster families and children.
