Zach is a transgender high school sophomore at Atlantic Coast High School. He tried out for the boys soccer team before being told her needed to go to the girls team instead.

Duval County Public Schools are apologizing this week after a transgender boy at Atlantic Coast High School was barred from playing soccer on the boys’ soccer team. Amid the hysteria over LGBTQ+ laws in Florida and in the nation, this has been a main topic of debate as of lately. This was reported first by the Florida Times-Union.
