Trey Muse enters his first season with the Battery and brings with him a wealth of experience at the club and international levels.
The 23-year-old arrived in Charleston after spending the 2022 season with Memphis 901 FC while on loan from Loudoun United FC. He quickly became the first-choice goalkeeper and was a valuable asset for 901 FC’s second-place finish in the Eastern Conference. Muse started 32 matches and notched a club-record eight clean sheets, along with 74 saves. His eight shutouts were tied for eighth-most in the USL Championship.
Muse began his professional career with Seattle Sounders FC, joining their academy in 2015 and later signing a Homegrown Player contract in 2019. He was subsequently loaned to Tacoma Defiance and San Diego Loyal SC, making 39 starts in USLC play from 2019 to 2021.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Muse has previously represented the United States at the youth international level. He made his U-18 debut on April 25, 2017, a 2-1 victory over the Belarus U-18’s. Muse was called up to the U-20’s and featured against the Japan U-20’s on March 24, 2019, also a 2-1 victory.
Muse played college at Indiana University from 2017 to 2018. He was named to the All-Big Ten All-Freshman Team while helping lead the Hoosiers to the College Cup final. In his sophomore year, he was named Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year, selected First-Team All-America and was a MAC Hermann Trophy semifinalist.
By joining Charleston, Muse links back up with former Indiana teammate Joe Schmidt and ex-Memphis teammates Chris Allan and Derek Dodson in the Lowcountry.
