Gift of Love: Zack

Zack is a 14-year-old boy who loves to play video games and wants to be a millionaire when he is older. 

"I like to play X Box 360 and PS3," said Zack.

Zack is also very good at air hockey! 
He's currently in the 8th grade and enjoys most subjects. 

"Doing math. I don't do well in reading but I still like it. Just doing my classes and hanging out with my friends," Zack said.

Zack continues to need guidance in the school setting and will benefit from a family that will continue to advocate for him at school.  Zack is also still working on overcoming past trauma issues, and will need a family who is supportive as he continues to work on them.  As for his future, Zack hopes to go above and beyond when it comes to his education.

"I'm planning to get a master's degree," Zack said.

But he hasn't decided his area of expertise just yet.  When not at school, Zack loves to hang with his friends.

"We play football or we go play video games," Zack said.

Zack's favorite food is hamburgers, and Mexican food is a close second!

As for his favorite colors, "Red and sometimes green and orange," Zack said.

Zack says if he could go anywhere in the world, he would want to visit Hawaii someday and learn how to surf.

When it comes to his forever family, Zack says he hopes to have some brothers his age.

"Skate board, learn how to skateboard, surf, if we could," Zack said.

Zack needs a family who can provide him with guidance, structure, stability, and routine.      They will need to be understanding and patient, and most importantly show Zack the Gift of Love.

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class. The NFL AP rookie of the year was in Longview Friday night for a fundraiser supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines.
