The Yellowjackets visited Zach at Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul where he is in rehab following open heart surgery. They took pictures with Zach and even presented him with autographed pictures of the D-G-F boys and girls basketball teams.

Perham was playing D-G-F when Zach collapsed on January 20th. Perham won their game last night, and will play again tomorrow night in the semi-finals.
