Zamroz, also a guard for TMC, was named to the NAIA 2007-2008 Division I Men's Basketball All-American Second Team.

"It was well deserved. He is consistent and efficient in every game he played," said TMC head coach Chuck Martin.

He started all 31 games, and was the high scorer in 20 of those games.

Zamroz also scored double figures in 30 of the team's 31 games.

The junior guard led the team in scoring with 18.7 points per game and assists (92).

In the Golden State Athletic Conference, Zamroz led in minutes played (36 minutes per game) and free throw percentage (85.9).

Zamroz's scoring average was second in conference.

"(The team) could count on him every night to not commit turnovers and to score many points on few shots," Martin said.

His accomplishments this season led the Mustangs to the GSAC Tournament for the first time in three years. They fell to California Baptist in the first round March 6 and ended their season 16-15.
