Former University of Cincinnati all-American Omar Cummings has been named to the 2011 Major League Soccer All-Star roster that will compete against Manchester United of the Barclay’s Premier League in the 2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game on July 27 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
Cummings led the Colorado Rapids to the MLS Cup championship last season. He has been hampered by injuries this season, only scoring 2 goals in 10 starts for the Rapids this season. Even with the injuries, the fans have been behind Cummings and elected him into the MLS All-Star game.
A 2006 first-team all-American, Cummings helped the Bearcats to a Big East Red Division title and an NCAA berth during his senior campaign. He was a two-time unanimous first-team all-Big East honoree and scored 13 goals with 16 assists in two seasons as a Bearcat.
The MLS All-Star game will be televised by ESPN2 at 8:30 p.m. on July 27.
