The Branch brothers
Zachariah has an elder brother named, Zion Branch.
The Branch brothers participated in soccer, basketball, track and field and gymnastics during childhoods that weren’t long for idle time.
Zachariah began by playing flag football alongside Zion on a team coached by their father, graduating to tackle by the age of 8 and beginning track a year or two later.
He won his first 100-meter dash, promptly realizing that his speed was best suited to “make people miss” on the football field.
With Zion 17 months his senior, Zachariah always had a companion at their father’s workouts and an adversary to sharpen his competitive drive.

To prepare for high school, Branch and his brother elected to home-school in junior high — creating additional time to train as they began to blossom. They’d arrive at a local EoS Fitness by 6 a.m. and work out for a couple hours before returning home to participate in their online curriculum.
Evenings were filled with additional workouts and football or track practice depending on the season.
