Bogue Cummings Commits to Play Soccer at Randolph-College


Bogue Cummings will play soccer at Randolph Macon in the fall.

At the turn of the new year, star senior athlete Bogue Cummings announced his verbal commitment to continue his soccer career at Randolph-Macon College. Cummings is a highly-regarded teammate, with senior Sammy Varela commenting, “His fiery presence on the pitch helps lead the team to important victories.”

Cummings originally started playing soccer because of his parents; however, he fell in love with the sport shortly after. He began his soccer career by signing up for Chesterfield United, a local club team. His dedication for the sport grew, and when he turned 10, he brought his skills to FC Richmond. Cummings still plays for the club, as a member of the U19 Magic team. In the 6th through 8th grade, Cummings played for Tomahawk Creek Middle School. After his time in junior high, Cummings enrolled at Midlothian High School, where he tried out for and made the boys varsity team in his first year. His teammates are ecstatic for his achievement, with senior Ross Williams adding: “He truly deserves this opportunity; he has led by example every year he’s played at Midlo.”

One trait that makes Cummings stand out among the rest is his leadership. During his junior season, Cummings served as captain of Midlo’s Varsity Soccer team. “[Cummings] is a great leader,” says senior manager, Jessie Dziedzic. “His leadership helps guide the younger players on the team.” In addition to his time spent as captain, Cummings’ proudest accomplishment was winning the Regional Championship in the spring of last year. “Lifting up that trophy, surrounded by my closest friends, is a moment I will never forget,” reflects Cummings.

Scouts from Randolph-Macon first saw Cummings compete in a FC Richmond league game and began the endeavor to recruit him to their school. Following multiple visits to the college, Cummings made his commitment to the team. His interactions with current players and the campus are ultimately what sold him. Cummings is thrilled to start his collegiate career for the Randolph-Macon Yellow Jackets this fall.
