Zach Freshwater is on fire. Friday night against a very good Youngstown Poland Seminary team that includes Miami OH recruit WR/DB Dave Koval and Michigan St recruit TE/DL Dan McGarry, Zach led Alter to a hard fought 28-25 win in Poland Ohio near Youngstown, following a 5 hour bus trip.
For the game Zach had 5 catches for 152 yards including an 86 yard in stride, over the shoulder bomb for a TD. Zach also rushed the ball 4 times for 26 yards and had 8 tackles on defense while guarding both Koval and McGarry off and on. He broke up one pass and had 2 hurries and 1 sack while blitzing the QB.
For the season now Zach has 440 yards receiving (5th in the GCL) on 19 receptions (7th in the league) with a 23.2 yards per catch avg. (2nd in the league). He also has 520 multi-purpose yards (11th). He has 3 TD receptions and 1 rushing TD.
Defensively, his 54 tackles (6.8 per game) ranks him 12th in the league among players who have played all 8 games and his 2 interceptions is still good enough for the top 5.
