Before heading to Italy to being the next phase of his professional basketball career, Oakdale High graduate Zach Thomas stopped by The Final Score podcast to talk about his eventful last year and a half.

Thomas chats with host Greg Swatek extensively about the process of trying to establish a career in professional basketball. The all-time leading scorer for boys basketball in Frederick County talks about his successful summer league stint with the Houston Rockets that recently finished and how the opportunity in Italy came about. He also discusses what he learned from the season he spent playing in Belgium.

What have been the coolest moments of the journey so far? Who are some of the well-known people he has gotten a chance to meet or play with? How does he keep himself and his game in shape?

Plus, what does he enjoy the most about getting the chance to spend time at home in Maryland? And what did he say to the referee to receive a technical foul on his way to fouling out of his final college game at Bucknell in the NCAA tournament?
