Lenhart and Connolly interview
Last Saturday, the Steamrollers practice was amped up with the energetic playing style of the San Jose Earthquakes forwards Steven Lenhart and Alan Gordon. The Steamrollers were anxious to watch these two great MLS players demonstrate their skills in the Power Wheelchairs and Lenhart and Gordon did not disappoint. They quickly adapted to the strategy of the sport, but struggled at times with maneuvering their power wheelchairs in and out of traffic on the court, which led to a couple of collisions by both players. By the end of the scrimmage, with Gordon and Lenhart on opposing teams, the players and other Earthquakes staff appeared to becoming more comfortable with their Power Wheelchairs and the sport of Power Soccer. It was a great afternoon with a lot of laughs and the Steamrollers really enjoyed the time spent with these two great guys. Check out the video put together by the Earthquakes on Lenhart’s and Gordon’s visit to the Steamrollers.
