VIDEO: Inspiration cuts both ways for Steve Zakuani and young Harbor FC player Jaxon Marquardt

* * *

I posted a link to this story a while back but earlier today some video became available through Kingdom Hope, Steve Zakuani‘s non-profit organization.

Back in August, Zakuani surprised Harbor FC defender Jaxon Marquardt out at practice one day. Marquardt had been recovering from a serious injury, just like the Sounders FC midfielder, and was one of many to reach out to Zakuani.

That message inspired this video.
