Zac got in a position, with his arms under the car, and lifted it up. He's being credited for saving the man's life.
"He had a couple of cracked ribs and his face was messed up pretty bad, but the doctors told him if I wasn't there then he'd be dead," Zac told WJW.
Zac's football coach, Dave Carroll, said he was not surprised that the football player jumped into action and that Zac wants to be a firefighter when he graduates. Carroll also said Zac always helps others.
Zac has known tragedy in his life, after his father died last year, and didn't want it to happen to his neighbors.
"I wanted to be able to save him to be with his family," Zac told WJW.
