Terps In Last Season In The ACC
A year ago Andrew Mullins had every reason to leave collegiate soccer behind in his rear view mirror, but he didn’t.
He was the MAC Hermann Trophy winner, symbolic of the Division I National Player of the Year. It was an All-America season, and professional teams and the Major League Soccer SuperDraft were calling his name.
While opportunity called, Mullins made the decision only he could make. He would remain at the University of Maryland for his senior year. He was staying because he wanted to stay.
You only get one chance in life to be a college student/athlete, and the native of New Orleans, was all in for his senior season.
To say that Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski welcomed his decision is more than an under-statement. As a senior Mullins leads the team in goals, assists, points, shots and shots on goal. That’s about as much as you could ask of the Terps’ senior captain.
Earlier in the season, Mullins, who was the Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior at Jesuit HS, was named ACC Player of the Week after his two-goal performance in the Terps’ 3-1 road win over fourth-ranked and previously unbeaten Clemson. Maryland is nationally ranked #12 with a 6-3-5 record, but the Terps have lost only once in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
