Zach Zandi, a midfielder for the Bethlehem Steel of the United Soccer League and a Henderson High School graduate, has been named The Philly Soccer Page’s Player of the Week, writes Dan Walsh.
The 22-year-old Zandi has been determined to quickly make a name for himself with the Steel. He recently scored one goal and created another in his professional debut, an opening-day road win over the Birmingham Legion.
Zandi also completed 37 of 42 passes and gave a good performance throughout.
The West Chester native played his college soccer at Villanova. There, he made an instant impact on the Wildcats and was a regular with Reading United. He’s also a product of the Philadelphia Union Academy.
“Zach is a well-rounded midfielder who came through our academy,” Steel coach Brendan Burke said when Zandi signed with the club. “He brings an excellent work ethic, demeanor, and understanding that we hope will allow him to adjust to the professional level quickly.”
Zandi is the son of Karl Zandi, the Chief Data Officer of Moody’s Analytics in West Chester.
