U.S. Soccer Development Academy goalkeeper Bill Hamid, who played for the D.C. United Academy and spent time with the U.S. Under-18 and U.S. U-20 MNTs, has joined the D.C. United first team. His signing was announced at a press conference at RFK Stadium before the U.S. Open Cup final yesterday.
This past summer, the 18-year-old was first choice in goal for the U-17/18 Academy team that compiled a 20-4-5 record and was a finalist at the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Finals Week. In 2008, he traveled to Portugal with the U-20 MNT to play in the Campos Verdes International Tournament and Mexico for the Copa Chivas.
Good luck Bill, and the rest of the players waiting in the D.C. United Academy ranks
