Orland Park’s Damian Martinez turns 12 on Thursday, March 21.

But the best present he may have received might have come a week earlier on March 14. Martinez, who plays soccer with the Orland Park Sting, was able to meet international legend and Chicago Fire star Bastian Schweinsteiger as a part of a Talks at Google presentation at the Google Chicago facility in the Fulton Market District.  He was able to meet and pose with the German soccer star after the program.
