HS Football: Zach Rush signs with UNC

FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) Thursday Fruita Monument senior quarterback Zach Rush had his signing day and he will be playing football at University of Northern Colorado.

The 6'3" quarterback threw for 962 yards and 12 touchdowns in his senior season. He helped lead the Wildcats to the postseason in each of his four years with the team.

This season, Rush was First Team All-Conference for the Wildcats. During his junior year, he didn't know whether he would be playing baseball or football in college. Once he got an offer from UNC, he was excited and he credits his Fruita family that helped him get to where he is today.

"I couldn't imagine going anywhere else with a different group of people.," said Rush. "These guys are my family... It's been the best experience of my life and I wouldn't have traded it for anything."
