As a graduate of Pleasantville High School in 2014 and now a student at Westchester Community College, Zach has always felt a strong connection to his hometown of Pleasantville. His 5 closest friends had a group chat that consisted of 95 percent sports talk. One day an idea was tossed around to turn these conversations into a podcast and thus The Ville was born. As the host of The Ville Podcast, Zach prides himself on being a well educated and middle grounded sports fan. His favorite sports include Basketball, Baseball and Football but he also has a fondness for discussing Hockey, Soccer, Esports, as well as a variety of other topics throughout the sports world. Zach and his friends hope that everyone will continue to come along with them every week as they return home to The Ville.
