Blood drive is held for soccer coach hurt in car accident

March 09, 1998

An emergency blood drive was held Saturday at the Four Seasons Sports Complex to benefit soccer coach Abdellatif "Zak" Zakhnini, who has coached at Four Seasons, Carroll Indoor Sports and Hood College.

Zakhnini has been in Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore since Feb. 1, when he was involved in an automobile accident. "He's well liked by everyone. A lot of people know Zak," said Lisa Shroers, a friend from Hampstead.

Zakhnini's family lives in Morocco. A fund has been established at First National Bank of Maryland to help with his medical expenses.

Anyone who missed the drive can still give blood for Zakhnini. Information: Teri Leatherwood, 410-374-9791.
