Philly's Homegrowns: Zach Pfeffer's memorable walk off winner

Philadelphia sports fans have been treated to some unforgettable game-ending wins in recent years: Desean Jackson’s Miracle at the New Meadowlands; Bryce Harper’s grand slam against the Cubs; and, of course, Philadelphia Union captain Alejandro Bedoya’s stoppage time winner against FC Dallas. What could be better than making the play that leads your team to a win in a crucial late-game moment? Ask the Union’s first homegrown signing Zach Pfeffer.

Pfeffer says he felt “pure joy” when he led his hometown club to a stoppage time victory over DC United in 2015.
