Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week: Zach Mizrahi

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Teaneck Doghouse would like to recognize 12-year-old Zach Mizrahi as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The seventh grader at Yeshivat He’Atid was a key contributor on Team Peru of the Teaneck Junior Soccer League. Mizrahi and his team finished their almost perfect season undefeated at 7-0-1. Mizrahi helped seal the deal with a hat trick in the team’s final regular season game.
