Zach Lederer, a manager on the Maryland men’s basketball team, passed away last night after a lengthy battle with brain cancer.
He was 20.
Zach was an inspiration to the basketball team and sparked a meme that went nationwide called ‘Zaching’. Maryland posted this picture of the team ‘Zaching’ this morning in his honor. CSN Baltimore posted a series of tributes from the players on twitter this morning.
