Career highlights and awards

Zach Zulli (born May 1, 1991) is an indoor American football quarterback who is currently a free agent. He played college football for the Shippensburg Red Raiders from 2009-2013. Zulli won the Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in the NCAA Division II in 2012 in his junior year at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania.

College[edit]

In 2012, Zulli led Shippensburg to an overall record of eleven wins and two losses (11–2) and to the second round of the playoffs.[1] During the season, he led all divisions of college football for the 2012 season with his 54 touchdown passes and 4,747 passing yards.[2] He also tied the NCAA Division II record for touchdown passes in a single season and established new records for both total points scored (344) and total touchdowns (57).[1][2] In recognition of his season, Zulli was awarded the 2012 Harlon Hill Trophy as the top player in NCAA Division II football.[1][2] As he won the award as a junior, Zulli became only the seventh underclassman to win the award and the first since Danny Woodhead in 2006.[1]

Professional[edit]

After the 2014 NFL Draft Zulli received a phone call from the Seattle Seahawks to attend the 2014 rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis. Zulli was not signed after displaying an impressive win during the team scrimmage with stats of 12-19 for 132 yards and a touchdown. Although Zulli wasn't signed by the team, he did make a good impression on Super Bowl winning coach Pete Carroll. After Zulli's tryout with the Seattle Seahawks he signed a professional contract with the Montreal Alouettes on June 25, 2014 where he will be starting on their practice roster. After originally signing with the Harrisburg Stampede, Zulli became a free agent when the Stampede suspended operations on December 30, 2014. He was signed by the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks, also of the Professional Indoor Football League.
