NASHVILLE --- Antonio Zita earned Ohio Valley Conference Specialist of the Week honors for his efforts against Bethune-Cookman. Zita shared the award with kicker Sam Hayworth of Eastern Kentucky.
In his first game as a Tiger, Zita went 4-for-4 on extra points and 2-for-2 in field goal attempts. The first-year kicker converted on two 23 yard field goals and scored 10 points in the Tigers 34-3 win over the Wildcats in the John Merritt Classic.
Zita takes over for graduated two-time All-American Lane Clark, who claimed the OVC Specialist of the Week award three times last year and five during his career.
