Sam Barlow HS K Zach Standish (Gresham, OR) has been visiting schools across the West Coast for the past year and was in Boise just a few days ago to checkout Boise State. Standish started kicking for his HS just a couple years ago, but schools have started to take notice after seeing his film from a number of kicking camps across the country.

"I was able to visit Boise State, Washington State, and Idaho on that trip," he said. "I'm heading up to Washington today," he added.

"Basically, I called Coach Huff and he told me he'd take a look at my film," he stated. "Unfortunately, the football offices were locked the day we were in Boise, so I didn't get to meet any of the coaches. We went and took a tour of the campus and I thought it was really nice. It was a great trip and I look forward to coming back for the camp this summer."

"My team is going to Boise for the team camp in June," said Standish. "I'm really excited for that. To have multiple days to work with Coach Huff and their coaching staff will be a big benefit for me. I'm excited to put in some hard work and show Coach Huff what I can do."

Standish is a former soccer player, but says he wasn't enjoying playing soccer at the HS level. He started running cross country and decided to give football a try. The talented K says he worked at it and has been the starter at Sam Barlow for the past two years.

"I just wasn't enjoying soccer," he said. "I started running cross country and decided I would give football a try. I went out there for try-outs and really got into it. I've gotten pretty good over the past couple years."

"I've been to three Chris Sailer Camps," said Standish. "You can't get that competition anywhere else and that's something that brings out the best in me. He said my FGs are really consistent and my kickoffs are improving."

So, what does Zach Standish bring to the gridiron?

"Coaches like that I'm continuing to get better," he said. "I've become very consistent from 40-in and this year I want to start making them from beyond that mark consistently too," he added.

As a junior, Standish was 7/9 on FGs with a long of 37 and was perfect on PATs.
