Zeb made 23 of 25 free throws at the 2009 Hoop Shoot National Finals—then he went on to sink 74 more. Zeb set the record for the longest shoot-off after tying with another Finalist for first; they went shot-for-shot for 75 additional baskets. Because of that, Zeb believes there’s nothing he can’t accomplish. When he faces a challenge, Zebulon thinks back to the Hoop Shoot and remembers that consistent hard work pays off. He’s excited to share his story with the Finalists and be a part of their once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Zeb is a member of the inaugural class of the Elks Hoop Shoot Hall of Fame.
