[HOMEGROWN WATCH] Bill Hamid, one of three homegrown players seeing plenty of action for D.C. United, enjoyed one of the best weeks of his young career when he held off Seattle, 2-1, with several spectacular saves and then earned a shutout in Saturday's 0-0 tie with FC Dallas. He admitted he was almost in tears after the Seattle game, thinking of the struggle it has been to return to action.

“I’m not going to lie, I was almost in tears at the end game,” he said. “That’s all that was running through my mind at the end of the game was the surgery, finally coming back and doing it big like I did last year. It’s been a long road.”

Hamid, who was sidelined late in his first full season with a shoulder injury, made big saves on Alvaro Fernandez and Fredy Montero to preserve the win.

Against FC Dallas, Hamid had a rather quiet evening as the D.C. backline put in one of its best displays of the season.

With Hamid back in the lineup, Pat Onstad has returned to the coaching ranks, taking up his position of goalie coach full-time.
