Unprecedented access will tell a different story of the typical day for MLS’s 2011 MVP

In the coming days, D.C. United players will be featured prominently across national television as the squad enters its most crucial part of the season. Below are some brief highlights and when the action will take place. Don’t forget to tune in or set your DVR’s!

MLS36 with Dwayne De Rosario on NBC
In the days before D.C. United’s game with Philadelphia on 8/19, NBC Sports was granted unprecedented access to 2011 MLS MVP Dwayne De Rosario. The feature chronicles the 36 hours prior to a game, and all of the prep that goes along with it, for De Rosario. De Rosario will be the third feature in the series, which has already gone through 36 hours with Chris Wondolowski of the Earthquakes and Fredy Montero of the Sounders. Make sure and tune in to NBC Sports Network at 7:00pm ET on Wednesday night to catch this one of a kind feature.

ESPN2 Feature on Andy Najar
United defender-midfielder and Edison High School (Alexandria, VA) standout Andy Najar has one of the most compelling stories in all of soccer – from his family background, to his unique abilities that has seen him spend valuable minutes in international competition as well as being one of the most exciting young players around. ESPN joined Andy at a few training sessions this summer to sit down and tell that story. Make sure and check it out during the pre-game show for D.C. United v Philadelphia Union on Thursday at 8:00pm ET on ESPN2.

We Live Soccer
Earlier in the summer, FOX Soccer spent some time in and around not only RFK Stadium, but the Greater Washington area to pull together a new and fresh look at soccer and culture in D.C. The crew spent times with D.C. United players like Dwayne De Rosario and Chris Pontius, and even spent some time in the stands of RFK Stadium during a game. Tune in on Monday, September 24th at 7:30pm ET to see the special.

13 September 4:31 pm is counting down the top 24 players under the age of 24 this week. They call it "24 Under 24." D.C. United has four players on this year's list.

United's 2012 Rookie of the Year candidate makes his debut in the rankings at number 16. The report noted the No. 7 overall 2012 SuperDraft pick "played like an expert pro" at the beginning of the season and cited his excellent work rate and 1-v-1 skills as strengths. Full report

Starting goalkeeper Bill Hamid has made the list for all three years of its existence. In 2010, the rookie 'keeper was ranked 14th, in 2011 he rose to 12th overall. Continuing his steady climb (and in twos) United's third-year shot-stopper came in at the 10th spot. The report described Bill as "a big guy and hard to beat." Full report

The 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year was ranked 3rd in both 2010 and 2011. The Honduran international makes the list for a third straight year in 2012, but slips down to number 9. The report called him "one of the bright young stars in MLS," but noted some coaches think "he’s lost a bit of his form of late." Full report on

The first round draft pick from the 2011 SuperDraft is the fourth D.C. United player on the list. Kitchen was ranked 17th in 2011, and climbs to number 8 in the 2012 version of the rankings. The report says United's young d-mid is "a leader on the field with good technical ability, good vision and his passing range is good." Full report on
