Lincoln-Way West senior goalkeeper Chris Zavala has been a frequent visitor to SeatGeek Stadium – formerly Toyota Park – for Chicago Fire games.

On Sept. 5, Zavala had the chance to play on the same field where he has watched so many of his heroes.

“I think everyone had a blast playing on this field,” he said. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience and not many people get to experience it. I’ve been coming to many games here. I got to walk out of that tunnel and see what professional players experience when they walk out onto this pitch.”
