It was a fun summer for Christian Zamora. The solid 6-foot-5, 185-pound wing from Lynden High School ran with the Washington Elite AAU program and he used it effectively to work on his game. College coaches were intrigued with his skills and it’s all a result of how he’s been developing as a player.
“Summer was good,” Zamora said. “Overall we improved individually and as a whole. I was more physical this summer than previous and I’ve learned to attack and find my spot on the floor and where I want to go. I didn’t particularly shoot very well in California but you’ll get that from time to time, but it was a good summer of growth.”
College programs, in particular at the Division II level, have taken a great interest in Zamora. He’s taken an official visit to Cal State Monterrey Bay and is planning on taking an unofficial to St. Martin’s. Alaska-Fairbanks and Concordia (Ore.) have been in frequent contact, and he’s also heard a little from Montana State. Zamora has no offers yet so he’s taking things slowly in the process.
“I’m keeping my options open and trying to play out the high school season and see where I’m at,” Zamora said. “I’m definitely looking for a place that will benefit me. I’m primarily a shooter but I like to attack when I can so I want an offense that will let me thrive and produce. My high school is very family oriented and we play for each other, so I’m looking for a college program that has that togetherness as a whole.”
With his college recruitment on the backburner and his focus on the upcoming season, Zamora has some goals to achieve. “This season I want to keep getting better individually and hopefully get us back to state this year,” Zamora said. “I want to keep on getting all-around more physical and put on some more weight to get college-ready. I want to keep on improving every aspect of my game too.”
