After sustaining an injury in one of the last scheduled games of the season, he chose to discontinue his upstart career in football and find a different profession. In the last couple of years in college, Zachrich was a part-time lacrosse player and then graduated with bachelor's degree in 2005. Around the same time, he stumbled upon mixed martial arts and began training with UFC legend and Hall of Famer Dan Severn at his gym, The Beast Academy, in Coldwater, Michigan and also trained with renowned Jujitsu practitioner Dave Morris. An upstart, Zachrich trained for two years under the tutelage of Severn and Jorge Gurgel's team, before accepting a last-minute offer to compete in an amateur bout in early 2006. Then one day, I met an MMA guy when I moved back to Defiance, Ohio, started training with him for fun and after a few months, someone needed a last minute fill in and I said yes.
