Zordich steps up to earn Ironman honors for Navy game

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State graduate student tailback Michael Zordich (Youngstown, Oh.) was voted the Iron Workers Local Union No. 3 "Ironman of the Game" for his week three performance against the Navy Midshipmen. Zordich received the most fan votes of the four nominees this week.

For the first time since he was at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, Ohio, Zordich started a game at tailback. With two injuries in the backfield, Zordich stepped up with a gritty performance for the Nittany Lion offense. Even though Zordich was out of his comfort zone, he managed to post a career-high 11 carries for 50 yards in the Penn State win over Navy this past Saturday.

Zordich joins both senior linebacker Michael Mauti (Mandeville, La.) and sophomore wide receiver Allen Robinson (Southfield, Mich.) as this year's "Ironman of the Game."

Nittany Lion fans can vote online each week throughout the football season for the Iron Workers Local Union No. 3 "Ironman of the Game". Fans can visit GoPSUsports.com/ironman from noon each Monday to noon on Tuesday to cast their vote for the week's top performer on the field. The 2012 Penn State Football "Ironman of the Game" is presented by Iron Workers Local Union No. 3, Building Beaver Stadium- Where Penn State Football Legends are made.
