2021’s Zach Reinhart considers the hardwood his personal sanctuary

Zach Reinhart is one of the best players from the Orlando, FL area in the Class of 2021.  


The 6-foot-6, 180-pound Reinhart, who attends Timber Creek High School, is a dynamic player that works as a shooting guard. 



Reinhart captured the Top Shooter award for his high school team. 


No matter the opponent, every game Reinhart is determined to give it his all. 


Reinhart is going all out. 


The motor is always at full throttle whenever Reinhart steps between the lines.


“My mindset is to score the ball, find open teammates, lead as much as I can, and hustle on defense and offense,” Reinhart said. 


Reinhart has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the court. Reinhart tells why he enjoys the game of basketball so much. 


“It honestly just makes me happy and takes my mind off a lot of my past and stuff at home,” Reinhart said. “Another thing I love about playing basketball is it makes my mom happy and proud as she is fighting breast cancer.”


Reinhart has learned many valuable lessons from playing basketball that he applies to his everyday life. 


“I’ve learned that nothing comes easy and you always have to work,” Reinhart said. 


Reinhart shares his favorite memories of playing basketball. 


“One of my favorite memories is winning a state title at my old school (CFCA),” Reinhart said. “Another one of my favorites is the game after my brother passed away. I went 7-of-8 from 3 and finished the game with 31 points.”


Reinhart takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Reinhart makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.


“Being a good teammate to me is being positive, keeping people in a good mindset and always being a person that any one of my teammates can come to for help,” Reinhart said. “The best advice I give is that everyone misses shots and messes up in game but just worry about the next play.”


Reinhart is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.


“My coaches have taught me to have confidence in everything and stop thinking about playing so much,” Reinhart said. “The best advice I’ve gotten is to keep shooting and focus on other stuff than just scoring. If I go out there and try to score I’m not going to let it come to me.”


Reinhart patterns his play after this rising rookie. 

“I look up to Tyler Herro because I always watched him and loved his game since he was in high school,” Reinhart said.   

Reinhart lists science as his favorite subject in school.  


“We are always doing something other than just taking notes and reading,” Reinhart said. 


Reinhart explains his collegiate aspirations. 


“My dream school is LSU,” Reinhart said. “I’ve loved the Tigers since I was a little kid and it would just be a dream to play there.”


Reinhart is striving for greatness in all that he does. 


“One day I dream of making money off this game and work for it very hard every day,” Reinhart said. “Off the court, I hope to have kids and a wife.”
