In his freshman year, Bruce Murray and Clemson took the 1984 NCAA championship in a 2-1 victory over Indiana. Through his four years at Clemson, Murray was a dominant forward, finishing his career as the first Clemson player to gain 40 goals and 40 assists.
The two-time All-American led Clemson to the National Championship again in 1987 while collecting 20 goals and 11 assists. That year, Murray was Clemson's first Hermann Trophy Winner (Wojtek Krakowiak '98). He was also named the ISAA National Player-of-the-Year and he led the ACC in goals, points and was second in assists. He had the winning goal in three NCAA Tournament games for the TIgers in 1987 against Evansville, Indiana and Rutgers respectively.
Murray went on to set a record, at the time, for most appearances and goals for the United States National Team. Around his time with the United States National Team, Murray would also play professionally in the United States and England for seven years.
In 1993, Murray was elected to the Clemson University Hall of Fame.
