A roster of 22 current and former players, Bruce Arena and, most surprisingly, Peyton Manning all paid their respects to Chad Marshall on a tribute video.

Most of the players had either played alongside Marshall either at the professional, youth or national team level. But a few of them were simply among the vast number of players who developed relationships with Marshall as a simple byproduct of his 16 years in the league.
While Manning’s inclusion was certainly surprising — Marshall is apparently a big Indianapolis Colts fan — the highlights of the video belonged to former teammates Erik Friberg and Zach Scott. Friberg came into his segment singing Rachel Platten’s anthem “Fight Song,” which they apparently jammed to while carpooling. Scott didn’t say much much but was a picture of class while sitting by a fire and sipping a martini.
