CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Newberry College senior wide receiver Tymere Zimmerman (Bennettsville, S.C.) has been selected as a Division II preseason All-American by Street & Smith's College Football, an annual publication that hit news stands this week. He is the only South Atlantic Conference representative on the offensive side of the ball.
This past season, the three-time All-South Atlantic Conference receiver broke the remainder of the Newberry College career receiving records (yardage, touchdowns, and receptions). In his sophomore season, Zimmerman broke or tied every single-season receiving record. The South Atlantic Conference records for career receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns are within Zimmerman's reach during this 11-game season.
Zimmerman concluded the 2005 season with selections to D2football.com's and the College Sports Report's All-America squads.
