Roger Levesque to be honored with Golden Scarf before kickoff Sunday

levesque scarf.jpgThe Sounders made it known upon Roger Levesque‘s retirement a few months ago that the longtime fan favorite would be honored before Sunday’s rivalry game vs. Portland.

Further details came Thursday, when the team announced Levesque will receive a Golden Scarf before kickoff.

“I haven’t had a chance to really process the scale of that experience,” he told SoundersFC.com. “I’m sure it’s going to hit me at some point. Having seen some of the people that they’ve honored in this capacity in the past, it’s humbling for me to even be considered in that group.”

Levesque told the team website he’s been doing some traveling since calling an end to his career back in July. He retired, in part, to enroll at the University of Washington to earn a Master’s degree in business.

This, of course, will be the first Sounders home game against the Timbers in about a decade without Levesque on the squad.

Fitting gesture, don’t you think?
