Antonio Zita TSU
Tennessee State kicker Antonio Zita hits the kick of the year to help put his team past Eastern Illinois University!

Antonio Zita put his name in the transfer portal last year but decided to stay put and finish what he started at Tennessee State. Well this weekend, he was able to display why he is an NFL Draft Prospect.

Zita nailed a 62 yard field goal for the OVC record to help push TSU past Eastern Illinois.

Zita made 20 of 24 field goals in 2019, which is a TSU single-season record and fifth all-time in the OVC. He also connected on 30 of his 32 extra points. 

The 5-foot-9 kicker made 83.3 percent of his field goals last season, leading the OVC.
