Best 2010 Aztex Comeback Player: Jamie Watson

Watson's career has been up and down a few times, but he really seems to have found a happy home with the Aztex this season. A first-round MLS draft pick after just two years at the University of North Carolina, he had three years in the big leagues before being cut and landing here in 2008 with the original U-23 (amateur) Aztex – where he was the team's top scorer but never seemed totally comfortable or happy. Now back after a year away in Wilmington, N.C., and nicknamed "Tintin" for his distinctive hairstyle, Watson's become a big fan favorite, and his penetrating pace on the left flank is one of the big reasons for the team's surprising success this season.
