The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that the Seattle Transformers are set to begin play in November as the record-setting expansion for the league continues. “We are very pleased to have Zach Gill as part of the ABA,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman. “He is a very special young man with quite a story. A great addition to the league.”
Zach was born with Aspergers Syndrome and is the first person with any form of Autism to own an ABA team. He is the Founder of Christian Faith Basketball Club which is a 501-c3 nonprofit dedicated to giving men and women a second basketball life as well as a volunteer Assistant Basketball Coach at Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood, WA. The team plans to play its home games at Seattle Pacific University, the home of the Seattle Pro/Am each summer. “We are very excited about being a part of the ABA,” added Gill. “We’ll be part of the strong Pac/North Division of the Pacific Region and hope to be successful on and off the court.”
