BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — For Garces Memorial standout, Zach Buckey, Wednesday morning felt like a lifetime in the making.

“It’s a dream come true and just something that tells you don’t be afraid to dream, above all things,” he said.

The son of Bakersfield’s own Jeff Buckey, a Stanford University standout and NFL lineman in his own right, Zach just wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps.
