Omphroy made his debut for Toronto June 29 as a second half sub for Joao Plata in a 1–0 home victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

He had initially experienced vision problems and numbness in his foot while with Sporting Clube de Portugal Academy Juniores. The symptoms, which later included neck pain, precluded him from signing his first professional contract with Sporting and forced him to return to the United States for medical attention. Toronto FC had no knowledge of his condition when they drafted him. Part of Omphroy's ongoing treatment is daily self-injections of Copaxone.
