LARGO, Md.— Nnamdi C. Umunna Jr., respiratory therapy major and student athlete at Prince George’s Community College, was recently named an All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). The Bowie resident received the honor for his outstanding performance in the Men’s Soccer Division III and will represent the college on the All-American second team. Umunna earned the recognition as one of the top 22 players in the division by scoring 17 goals and earning 11 assists.
“Umunna is a tremendous forward and it has been a year of great achievement for him,” said Jimmy Bell, men’s soccer coach at Prince George's Community College. “Last month, he was named most valuable player of region XX at the sophomore all-star game where he scored two goals and had an assist,” he added.
Umunna is the 10th Prince George's Community College Owl to be named NJCAA All-American since 2000. Nearly every year, one or more players has been named to the prestigious group and in 2009 two Owls, Terry Akpua and Nana Bamfo, were awarded honors.
