ROCK HILL, S.C. - Newberry College wide receiver Tymere Zimmerman and defensive end Tony Ransom have been named the Offensive and Defensive Player’s-of-the-Week, announced by the league office on Monday.
Zimmerman caught 10 passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns as the 17th-ranked Indians downed the 22nd-ranked Wingate University Bulldogs 36-24. Zimmerman showed off his athletic abilities as well in the game by throwing a 22-yard touchdown pass to Alex Haynes. The Bennettsville, SC native leads the squad in receptions (38), receiving yards (438) and is tied for the team-lead with five receiving touchdowns.
