As a student athlete, Zeier was a star quarterback for the Bulldogs. He was chosen team captain for the 1993 and 1994 seasons, and he finished his UGA career with 67 passing records. He was also a 1994 finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, given to the nation's top collegiate quarterback. Drafted in 1995 by the Cleveland Browns, Zeier also played for Baltimore and Tampa Bay, throwing for more than 3,500 yards and 16 touchdowns in his NFL career.
