This year he became the school’s all-time leader in points and is only one goal away from becoming the program’s leader in career goals.

Muller is the 10th Maryland player to win the Schmeisser Award, joining a list that included Lee Zink (2004), Michael Howley (2003), Dan Radebaugh (1995), BJ Burlace (1992), Mike Farrell (1976), Mike Therle (1973), Johns Simmons (1956), William Hubbell (1952), and Robert Detters (1946).

Muller earned All-American honors for a second straight year for his efforts on close defense. This year he had 31 ground balls and 16 caused turnovers. He had also scored a career-high four goals with one assist.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
