2020 Aztec Invite - Zach after his win.

Anything you've overcome to get to this point in your athletic career?
What I am experiencing right now, with the loss of my senior track season, has been the biggest most emotionally draining challenge of my athletic career. Having to find a track to train, or a park or just the street...I never thought it would come to this.

What sort of school are you looking to become a part of?
Looking for a solid program with a talented hurdling coach. A place that can make me a champion with a fun team atmosphere. Looking for a coaching staff to see my potential and help me improve.

Why do you enjoy track and field/cross country? Why do you wish to compete in college?
Track and Field is such a different sport- It's all up to the athlete. There is no hype, no twitter hype, just your times and your teammates. Times don't lie. If you train hard and are lucky to have the gift of speed you can go far.
