Zacn Sarginger’s East Stroudsburg University football jersey #58 has recently been displayed in Haywood’s Bar & Grill, Muncy. He is the son of Rick and Sue Sarginger, Pennsdale. Zach was a 2007 Muncy High School graduate where he was the Indian’s left tackle for three years and named to 1st team All-State. He is an Economics major at East Stroudsburg University with a minor in Mathematics.

Zach started 33 games on the ESU offensive line, and

was the Warriors’ starting left tackle his last two seasons. He has started at four different positions on the line during his career (15 at LT, 2 at LG, 11 at RG, 5 at RT) and was named to the Academic All-District team in 2009 when ESU advanced to the NCAA Playoffs. The Warriors had a 23-22 record during his four years on the team.

Zach was a member of the 2011 ESU offensive line that led Division I in fewest tackles for loss per game (3.18, 35 in 11 games). This offensive line allowed just 10 sacks, including only four in 396 attempts by quarterback Ray Wagner, who was named a regional finalist for the Harlon Hill Trophy for the top player in Division II.

The Warriors led the PSAC and ranked 5th nationally in Division II in passing (323.2 ypg), ranked 3rd in the PSAC and 27th in DII in total offense (430.6).

In addition to his football scholarship, Zach was the recipient of the 2011 Doc Sutton Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship was established by Dr. Robert G. Sutton, Faculty Emeriti, who was a former assistant football coach and a 40-year member of the ESU Health and Physical Education faculty. Zach has stayed on with the ESU football program as a student coach.
