Bill Hamid has been one of the best goalkeepers in MLS over the past five years and this year is no different. United's first Homegrown Player leads all goalkeepers with 30 saves, which has helped him reach an average of 455 Audi Player Index points per game this season, the most of any goalkeeper.

2 Tim Melia (SKC) 442
3 Joe Bendik (ORL) 421
4 Clement Diop (LA) 392
5 Alec Kann (ATL) 371

Hamid has been to get his place at the top in large part due to his ability to make diving saves. He has earned 157 points per game on average making such saves, 71 points more than the average goalkeeper. He has also separated himself by making saves from inside the box.

He will look to continue his stellar play this Sunday against Alec Kann and Atlanta United FC (3 pm ET; FS1 and FOX Deportes in US | MLS LIVE in Canada).
