Zakya, a Junior at East Montgomery High School, is not only a standout defensive lineman for the Eagles, but more importantly an outstanding student.

Zakya is an A/B honor roll student, and a part of numerous clubs and organizations.  He is highly esteemed by his peers and teachers and has been described as a “Gentle Giant” because he is always willing to jump in and help in anyway.

Zakya is not only a leader in among his peers, he is also a leader in the community.  Once graduating from East he plans to attend a college or university.  Even though he is young, he understands the importance of trusting God in every situation and as his guide for making wise decisions.

We are extremely proud of this young man for his hard work and success, and most importantly, his outstanding character.
