Zack Ruhl   Zack is one of my favorite athletes.  Not just because he is a bad ass adaptive athlete who refuses to quit, but also because he is fun and funny.  He is always having a good time, trying new things and cheering on others.   Another golden opportunity to crush it today from… Read more »
