On August 19, 2014 Colorado Rapids defender Drew Moor went down with a devastating season-ending ACL injury. Fast forward 11 months later and because of his outstanding play, Moor has been named to the 2015 MLS All-Star roster.

In his 11th year in MLS, Moor has been active in 11 games this season. In those contests, Moor has scored one goal, has one assist and a 50% SOG.

“Individual awards are great but (being picked) feels really good. Hopefully my body of work has been enough to prove that I need to be in an All-Star Game, especially here in front of my home fans which is awesome.

“It’s something that if I go out there and step on the field, I will give it absolutely everything I have. It has been a roller coaster season and year for me and to be picked to the All-Star game is pretty special.”

Moor even became emotional upon learning about his selection to the game.


In 2012, Moor was named the Colorado Rapids “Defensive Player of the Year.” Moor has scored 22 MLS goals in his career, 14 as a member of the Rapids. He has also played with FC Dallas during his time in MLS.

The 2015 All-Star game takes place July 29 at 7 p.m. at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. The MLS All-Stars will be facing off against the English club Tottenham Hotspur.
