Springfield, Mass. - March 26, 2018 - Springfield College is proud to announce that Brandon Mueller '05 is one of the six individuals who will be inducted into the Springfield College Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, April 14th.
A standout for the men's volleyball program, Mueller was a four-year letterwinner for the Pride. Mueller led the Pride to a pair of Molten Invitational Division III National Championships, as the Pride hoisted the national championship trophy in 2002 and 2003, and was named the Most Valuable Player in each of those national championships. A four-time Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA) Division III All-Conference player selection, Mueller was named to the EIVA Division I All-Conference team three times, including a first-team honoree in 2004. His name has been etched into the NCAA and Springfield College record books, as he holds the program record for most career kills with 1,604, as well as NCAA records for most kills in a five-set match (37) and most attempts in a five-set match (80), and is second in NCAA history for most kills in a five-set match (36) and three-set match (26).
Mueller continued his volleyball career after graduating from Springfield College when he played professionally in Germany. He has since moved to the classroom and sidelines, and has taught and coached at Deer Creek-Mackinaw High School since 2013, and was named Illinois High School Coach of the Year in 2014.
