"Recruiting has been pretty constant for me, but it hasn't been as much as I would like it to be," Zach told Dawgman.com. "I'm still looking for schools to call me, and my coaches think that will happen."
Krula and his Valley teammates compiled a disappointing 4-6 record, which means they won't
make the playoffs. "But we had a lot of fun this year," Zach said.
While the team goals weren't met, Zach feels he improved in a lot of areas of his game. "I
was trying to get faster and quicker, so that when I get to college I'm not completely stupid
and useless," he said with a big laugh. "I tried to get to the 'backers quicker, use my hands
better to overpower guys. At first it was very hard to get my pad level low, and I thought I was
fine for a while, but then I saw some film and I was way too high, so I'm constantly trying to
get it lower and lower, as low as I can."
When it comes to D1 colleges contacting Zach, they are all from the West Coast, and
include Washington, Nevada, ASU, Arizona and Boise State. "There aren't
any offers, no trips yet, but Washington just sent a letter on Saturday asking to set
up a visit," Krula said. "I tried them Saturday, but I know they are really busy right now, so I'm
going to keep calling them. I'm trying to contact Nebraska to set up a trip too."
If he had his wishes, Washington, Nebraska, Arizona State, Oregon and
Florida would be the schools he would most like to visit. "If I have a chance to take
all of those visits, I'd be pretty satisfied," he said.
The coach recruiting Zach for the Huskies is a familiar face around the Valley High campus.
In fact, Steve Axman spent a lot of time there last year recruiting current Husky Manase
Hopoi. "He's a nice guy," Krula said. "I like him a lot. He's nice to talk to."
