Zachary, a 15-year-old who has Asperger's syndrome just started his freshman year at Mitchell High School in Mitchell, Ind. Zach, who played football in junior high school spent most of his time on the bench. His coach, John Edge, who coaches both the junior high school and high school junior varsity squads wanted to give Zach another chance to show the world what he is made of.
Now Zach, after tryouts, has earned a spot on the Mitchell Bluejackets Junior Varisty Team where he will be the starting linebacker on their defense as well as running back on the offense.
