Not only did Zach contribute to the Cardinals success as an emotional leader, but also with his on-field performance. Making the transition from defensive tackle to defensive end was not difficult for Wiersma, who recorded more than 50 individual tackles. He was a dominating presence against Central State Athletic Association opponents, earning All Conference and All Area Dream Team honors. Zach also anchored an offensive line that led the way for an All Conference backfield.
Beyond the football field, Wiersma helped the Cardinal basketball team to an undefeated regular season (20-0) and looked to be an integral addition to the defending conference championship track team. Zach is currently undecided where he will continue his education, but is planning to pursue a degree in Sports Management.
