In his essay Zach states: “I have learned a lot from being a leader on my football team. Everyone is accountable for their own words & actions. At the same time everyone needs to know that his teammates have their back. One of the best things about high school football is kindness, leadership, and passion that can be seen any given Friday night. Really, what it is, is the making of men! Treat every single moment of high school football like it is the only thing that matters. Because when it gets broken down, the only thing you can have any effect on is the moment. That mantra goes well beyond the football field. Whether it is academics, relationships, or a job. Living in the moment makes for grateful, happy people.”
