Rapids Forward Omar Cummings Named The MLS Player Of The Month

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.
