College football: Huskies star RB a Harlon Hill finalist


Quiteh is Bloomsburg's third finalist to make the final three in the voting joining Sigler in 1997 and Jamar Britingham in 2005, who finished third.

In 2010 Quiteh became the first freshman to make the final eight on his way to a sixth-place finish.

Other top eight finishers for the Huskies were Jay DeDea (5th in 1987) and Brittingham (6th in 2007).

Zulli and Quiteh have a chance to give the PSAC its third Harlon Hill winner. Sigler won it in 1997 and East Stroudsburg quarterback Jimmy Terwilliger won in 2005. Twenty-three of 25 all-time winners have been either quarterbacks or running backs.

Zulli was the 2012 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East Division Offensive Player of the Year and led Shippensburg to an 11-2 record, including a pair of wins over Bloomsburg, and into the second round of the NCAA playoffs.

Zulli tied a Division II record with 54 touchdown passes, throwing for 4,747 yards while completing 62.8 percent of his passes and throwing just 10 interceptions in 544 attempts.

Hill was the 2012 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Offensive Player of the Year after leading Missouri Western to a 12-1 record, an MIAA championship and into the quarterfinal of the Division II playoffs where the Griffins face Minnesota State-Mankato Saturday.

Hill has carried the ball 282 times this season for 2,065 yards and 16 touchdowns.
