Carroll's Center Balcom Stepping Up

Posted: Updated:

Next man up is the motto for lots of teams after an injury occurs. Fifth year Senior Center Zach Balcom has certainly 'stepped up' big time for the Carroll Saints. The Missoula Loyola product took over for All-Conference Center Alex Kastens when he tore his Achilles in the first round game against Georgetown. Balcom says he's able to succeed thanks to guidance from Kastens and his teammates confidence in him.

"I don't know if I get it done like Alex did but the guys around me have really stepped up and it helps a lot. Meetings, film, practice Alex is right there beside me. In my ear and telling me what I need to do better, what works for him. So he's really helped me a lot," said Balcom.

"He's a tremendous young man and he comes from a great program at Missoula Loyola. He's the type of guy that we have here that if somebody goes down, he's usually one play away from starting. He knows the offense inside and out, he's confident in himself. I think the most important part of it is that his teammates have a lot of confidence in him," said Saints head coach, Mike Van Diest.

Balcom and the Saints will go marching in to University of the Cumberlands to take on the #1 ranked Patriots this Saturday at 10am.
