Hometown: New Orleans, LA
Mullins became the seventh player to win back-to-back Hermann Trophies, joining players such as National Soccer Hall of Famer Al Trost (1969-70) and former U.S. Women’s National Team forward Mia Hamm (1992-93). Mullins capped his senior campaign with 46 points on 19 goals and eight assists. His point and goal totals are both tied for the fifth-highest single season records in Maryland history.
Mullins finished his career second in Terp men’s soccer history with 47 goals and 119 points. He is a two-time First Team All-Atlantic Coast Conference player; a two-time All-ACC Championship Most Valuable Player; a two-time NSCAA All-American; and a 2013 College Cup All-Tournament Team honoree. Mullins led the Terps to a nation-best 13th straight NCAA Round-of-16 in 2013, and captured the ACC regular season and tournament titles for the second consecutive season.
2013 Runner-ups for the men’s award were Notre Dame senior forward Harrison Shipp (Lake Forest, Ill.), followed by UCLA junior midfielder Leo Stolz (Munich, Germany).
Mullins led Maryland’s high-scoring attack with 17 goals and 10 assists. He tallied seven game-winners to lead Maryland to the best winning percentage in the country (20-1-3). The Terrapins made it all the way to the College Cup semifinal where they lost on penalty kicks
An NSCAA First Team All-American, Mullins’ 2012 season ranks sixth in points and goals, and eighth in assists in Maryland program single-season history. The forward was named ACC Offensive Player of the Year and tabbed Most Valuable Player at the ACC Championship after leading the Terps to their third ACC tournament crown since 2008. He also helped Maryland capture the ACC regular season crown for the first time since 2005. Mullins is the second player in Maryland history to win the MAC Hermann Trophy. Jason Garey received the crystal soccer ball trophy in 2005.
2012 Runner-ups were Notre Dame forward Ryan Finley (Lumberton, N.J.) followed by Creighton senior midfielder Jose Gomez (Santa Ana, Calif.).
