Colorado Rapids forward Omar Cummings has been named the MLS player of the month for September.
Cummings scored six goals in the month, helping the Rapids to a 3-1-1 record and stable playoff footing.
"To receive this honor is great," said Cummings, who earns his first-ever Player of the Month award. "This is something I have never done in my career before and it always feels good to be recognized; but this is also a reflection on how well the team is playing as we make our push to the playoffs. It feels good."
After a mid-season winless slump, the Rapids are rounding into form at the right time as there are 4 more matches before the playoffs begin.
