GREENSBORO - North Carolina A&T freshman kicker Zach Cimaglia was named MEAC Rookie of the Week after his outstanding performance against Virginia University of Lynchburg on Saturday.

Cimaglia (5-10, 140, Charlotte, N.C.) booted four field goals against the Dragons as the Aggies came away with a 40-7 win. Three of Cimaglia's field goals traveled more than 40 yards. Yonnick Matthews' single-game school-record five field goals on Sept. 27, 2003 marked the last time an Aggies kicker has been successful on four or more field goals in a game.

The addition of Cimaglia has already made a huge difference. He not only kicks field goals for the Aggies, but he also handles kickoffs and punts. Over the prior 10 seasons, Aggie kickers have combined to record 19 touchbacks on kickoffs. Cimaglia already has seven in 2012.  

He also leads the team in scoring with 33 points on 15-for-15 extra points and 6-for-8 field goals. His field goal count matches the total field goals the Aggies connected on during the 2011 season. Cimaglia and the Aggies return to action 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 27 as they welcome the Morgan State Bears to Aggie Stadium for a nationally-televised game live on ESPNU.
