The American Rivers Conference has announced that Luther College junior place kicker Jonah Zaimes (Iowa Falls, Iowa/Iowa Falls-Alden) has been named the league's Special Teams Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019. This is the first time he has been so honored.
During Luther's 35-34 victory over Nebraska Wesleyan University on Senior Day, Zaimes was 5-for-5 in point after attempts that proved to be the difference in the game. He also averaged 55.5 yards on six kick-offs that included two touchbacks.
Zaimes is the first Norse to earn Special Teams Player of the Week since October 8, 2017 when Cory Wirth was presented this honor.
