The Defender of the Year award should be renamed.
The Chad Marshall Defender of the Year Award...
Hell of a guy .. Hell of a career @ChadMarshall14 ..
Yes - @ChadMarshall14 is a heck of a soccer player. But for 16 years he did it his way. With sarcasm, toughness, humor, and professionalism - all the while singing and dancing to Whitney Houston. I hope this never changes. What's your favorite Chad moment? #ThankYouChad— Taylor Graham (@TaylorGraham26) May 22, 2019
It’s been said 1,000,000 times already but I’ll say it one more time. One of the best to ever do it and somehow an even better guy. Love you @ChadMarshall14 expect to still have you there for offseason workouts https://t.co/FWKdzQKCQY— Eriq Zavaleta (@_AIR_RIQ_) May 22, 2019
I first met @ChadMarshall14 in a Queen Anne Starbucks with his old buddy @TaylorGraham26 when he’d just signed for @SoundersFC. I was struck by his quiet modesty, given his on-field stature. An unassuming all-time MLS great, consistently brilliant and a terrific guy https://t.co/BeLXT8th7y— Ross Fletcher (@RossFletcher1) May 22, 2019
What an absolute legend this man is not only on the field but off it too!

Chad played for three teams in his career. In college he played for Stanford, before being drafted by the Columbus Crew, and then traded to the Seattle Sounders
Of course the Sounders’ digital team pulled out all the stops to send Chad off with the farewell he deserves.
