Chris Pontius is back in the eighteen for the first time in 2014 since undergoing hamstring surgery in April. As D.C. United's longest tenured player, the California native never took a break from being a leader on the squad as he battled through his rehab. His teammates of new and old took notice of his commitment to remain positive, to regain fitness and to improve his ping pong game. 

What has Chris been like around the locker room this year?
