Westlake, Ohio –
Oberlin College senior Zach Kisley
was honored at the National Football Foundation and Cleveland Touchdown Club Charities awards banquet last night at the LaCentre Banquet Center in nearby Westlake, Ohio.
Kisley, a native of Libertyville, Illinois, received a postgraduate scholarship from the Northeast Ohio Chapter of the National Football Foundation. A biochemistry major and Spanish minor, Kisley has excelled in the classroom and on the football field during his time at Oberlin.
With graduation rapidly approaching, Kisley is considering pursing medical school or possibly teaching English in Spain in the future. Undoubtedly he will succeed in any endeavor he chooses.
An All-NCAC First-Team selection and Third-Team All-Ohio honoree this season, Kisley recorded 72 tackles to go along with two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble. Winner of the Michael P. Dougan Yeomen Spirit Award, he also served as the team's punter, averaging 37.2 yards per punt. He placed 11 kicks inside the 20-yardline and had seven kicks over 50-yards, including a 70-yard boot in a 24-0 win over Allegheny.
