But now young Myers is starting to find his own way in the football world and is starting to catch the attention of college coaches.
This past fall young Zach earned a starting spot along the Miamisburg (Ohio) offensive line as a freshman. Not only did Zach earn a spot he was considered by many the anchor of the unit and showed great potential for such a young player earning All-Divisional 1st Team honors in the GWOC South.
No other freshman earned 1st Team All-Divisional in the three division conference made up of several very good programs.
With his freshman year behind him Zach is now looking to find his way into the recruiting process and looks to be headed in the right direction.
"This is all really exciting and I'm just working hard to be a good player and teammate for my team. I feel the rest will take care of itself."
At 6-foot-3, 245-pounds Myers has some more growing to do but his overall skills are advance for such a young player. A tackle in high school Zach understands his game may need to move inside and he's working on being able to man all five line positions to make him a more valuable prospect.
Zach didn't have to look far to find a role model in his father. Brad Myers earned four letters at Kentucky and also was honored with the Unsung Hero Award in 1987 his final year in the Wildcats program.
Right now neither Myers is too concerned with what the future might bring, but no matter where Zach Myers ends up they'll always be Wildcats football to talk about in the family.
