Mueller was a four-year starter for the Huskies and received numerous accolades throughout his college career, including Second-Team All-Pac-10 in three consecutive years and UW's 2010 Defensive MVP in his senior season.
The Charleston Battery, out of Charleston, S.C., plays in the American Division of the USL Professional Division. Next up for the Battery is a match against Harrisburg City Islanders on August 8. Fans can listen to the games live at Charleston Sports Radio.
