From the time Zach was a little kid, he not only accepted it, but he embraced it. His father always treated him as normally as possible and Zach really took to the game of basketball. Zach has really become a star on the court as a guard on his high school team in Alpharetta, Georgia.
Opposing players often think the best strategy is to make Zach go to his left, but Zach has seen this so much that he has actually learned to go to his left as good or better than his right. In fact, he played so well
during a 2013 AAU camp, that he was named one of the most impressive prospects.
Now, he is even receiving interest from colleges. First, UAB had interest and most recently, the University of Florida has offered him the opportunity to make the team as a preferred walk-on.
When asked what motivates him, Zach said: “Passion and love for the sport helps me overcome all obstacles. To this day, I haven’t come across anything I can’t do. I know that people who don’t know me sleep on me when I walk on the court. They don’t think I can play or they don’t know what to think, but it’s when I hit those first few shots or when I go by them is when they wake up. That’s when they start playing me hard. And that’s what I love. I know that I have just earned their respect and that’s all I want.”
