I have been teaching and coaching baseball at Gull Lake High School in Richland, Michigan for 21 years. During my tenure, I have never come across an individual as highly qualified for the Power Showcase as Zach Fish. Zach has all of the characteristics, both tangible and intangible that make him an outstanding representative for the state of Michigan. 

I have had the distinct privilege of coaching Zach during his time at Gull Lake. During that time, I have seen tremendous growth in this young man, both in ability and personally. As a member of our team, Zach established school records in hits, triples, home runs, RBI and saves. Obviously, I have been very impressed with his baseball ability. He has more power than any player that I have seen in my coaching career. Zach possesses all the tools for continuing to play the game of baseball for many years.

However, as impressed as I have been with his baseball ability, it has been more enjoyable to watch his growth as a person and teammate. Zach is his own worst critic. He works very hard at the game of baseball and is a fierce competitor. I have seen him channel this competitiveness in a positive manner. I have watched Zach evolve into a leader. Last season, we had many underclassmen on our team. Zach took these players under his wing and learned to lead by both his actions and words. After advancing to the second round of the state playoffs, I was speaking with Zach between games. He said that he really wanted to win our next game for one of his teammates. In addition, Zach was unable to attend our awards banquet at the end of the season due to his commitment to his summer team. Zach wrote a letter to his teammates that he wanted me to read to them at the banquet. The words that he wrote about his teammates moved some of them to tears. I will remember that moment more than any victories that took place during the season.

I am truly looking forward to the 2011 season and Zach Fish is a major part of my personal excitement. Zach’s baseball ability and concern for his teammates set him apart from the rest. Zach will be an outstanding representative for our state and for the Home Runs That Help.
