Zach is a hard working player who can play either attack or midfield. His greatest strength is his footwork and ability to beat his defender. That added with his ability to score an distribute with both his left and right hand makes him a great fit for any college offense.

Jul 28, 2020

A MUST HAVE! Certainly, in a day and age where it seems a growing number of people might prefer to take the ‘path of least resistance’, Zachary blazes his own trail. He is physical, relentless, plays with a high motor & extremely competitive!

Patrick Gaeger

Zach is a high performing athlete with even higher character. He does everything right which allows him to be coached at a high level. He is constantly looking to be pushed and sets the standard amongst his teammates. Endorsing Zach is a no brainer.
