Climbing mountains and crossing lakes

When Zach Eagle was little, he ran the footballs from the sidelines to the line of scrimmage.
"I just the loved the whole atmosphere," he said. "The game, the crowd and the band."
After watching his fair share of heartbreaking losses and come-from-behind victories, Eagle would go to sleep and dream about catching game-winning touchdowns for Camas.
Fast forward to the present. Eagle is a 17-year-old high school junior. He stands 5 feet, 9 inches and weighs 170 pounds. And every Friday night, he lines up with the Papermakers as a wide receiver and a defensive back.
"It's fun playing the game I love with my friends. I've been dreaming about this since I was a little kid. It's where I always wanted to be," Eagle said. "I think about all the hard work it took to make it out there. All the practices and the time lifting weights. It definitely pays off."
