PERHAM, Minn. - With the most significant change of his life ready for the silver screen, teammates say Perham guard Zach Gabbard is living the life of a local celebrity.


It was nearly six months ago when Gabbard, 17, collapsed during a game at Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton from cardiac arrest.

His story captured the region and eventually the entire state. Today, his story will be part of a movie titled, "For Three" chronicling the Perham boys basketball team's season.
