Zachary Langenbach, a senior at Apache Junction High School, 2525 S. Ironwood Drive in Apache Junction, knows how to score. The student athlete and scholar received a $25,500 scholarship from Monmouth College in Illinois. The scholarship was for football and academics.
Langenback was named defensive player of the region and first team linebacker and long snapper for two years running. Zach said he chose the small, nationally-ranked liberal arts college, because it was the best fit for football and what he wants to do after college.
“I would like to thank my coaches and teammates for their support,” said Langenbach. “I am proud to a Prospector and will always carry a little bit of that with me as I move forward.”
