Zach Page felt the pressure of having his two older brothers play before him for the Jay M. Robinson soccer squad.
He felt like he needed to make the varsity team as a freshman like his oldest brother Dallin, who once held the career and single-season scoring records at the school.
"I remember coming to the games when I was younger, so when I got to high school I had so many things to look up to that my brothers had accomplished and that gave me something to aspire to," the senior midfielder said.
Dallin, 20, started playing for Robinson in 2003. Jay M. Robinson head coach Michael Hoke said Dallin, who went on to be a team captain, was a player who shied away from the spotlight even though he was a striker. Hoke said Matt, 19, was even quieter.
Never miss a local story.
That quietness wasn't passed on to Zach, who was one of the captains for this year's 20-3-1 Bulldogs team.
"Zach is more of a talker, he's the questioner - he wants to understand things," Hoke said. "That's a good thing to have in high school."
When Zach arrived at Robinson four years ago he set a goal to make the varsity squad at the latest by his sophomore year.
"I felt that if I didn't make it by then that I wasn't as good as Dallin," he said. "I felt like there were big expectations."
Zach achieved his goal and went on to start for most of his sophomore year as a back - a position he was not used to playing.
Hoke said Zach stepped up to play in the defense even though he was not comfortable playing there - something Hoke said is exemplary of the Page brothers' work ethic.
Zach played back again his junior season, when he earned all-conference honors at that position.
Zach said he has always looked up to his brothers - both on and off the field - ever since he started playing soccer at the age of 3 in a recreational league with his brother Matt.
The 18-year-old said he loves the fast pace and the emotions that go along with the game.
"The thrill of when you score a goal - it's just that rush of relief - and the feeling of beating somebody, the physicality of it," Zach said. "It's just the best."
Hoke said Zach had a good season for the Bulldogs as a center midfielder.
"He got the position that he's really comfortable in as a senior and really did a great job," Hoke said. "Rather than being the sly, great foot-work, killer offensive machine he was much more of a disruptor - he's just a hard-nosed player."
Zach is planning to attend college after graduation and plans to will take a couple of years off to go on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after his first semester.
His older brothers are currently out on their missions.
Zach's younger brother, Tory, will attend Robinson next year. Tory, 13, also plans to play soccer. Zach said he feels it's a great accomplishment to have a Page brother on the Robinson soccer squad for more than a decade
"It's cool knowing that for 12 years we'll have a Page playing on this team," he said. "Just to know that every game there's going to be a Page announced on the intercom is just a great feeling."
