Zachary started playing the sport at the age of eight, where he started with the atom Calgary Cowboys for three years.

He then went on to play peewee for two years, bantam for two and a year of midget with the Cowboys.

In his second year of peewee, the Cowboy was awarded the Ram Tough award, and also won the award in his second year of bantam.

That year also brought him recognition of being on of the top running backs in the Calgary Bantam Football Association (CBFA).

Moreover, Zachary was selected for Team South with the Bantam Bowl in Lethbridge, Alberta and from there was selected for the under-16 Team Alberta roster that will be representing Canada in Arlington, Texas for the International Bowl against Team USA in 2016.

“The highlight of last season would have to be making Calgary Selects and the South Bantam Bowl teams,” says Zachary.”This upcoming season, I am going to train hard to become a better player and teammates.”

Zachary is only in grade ten, but is mostly looking into the University of Calgary, but is open to different opportunities as well.

Throughout his career, the fullback is inspired by a couple of people.

“The most influential people in football for me are Collin Newman and Tony Spoletini,” explains Zachary. “Collin Newman is my uncle and played for the Calgary Dinos, tried out for the Calgary Stampeders, and Tony Spoletini has a huge name in minor football and in CIS, played in the CFL and has been my coach for eight years.”

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
