The San Diego Loyal officially have a goalkeeper on the roster as they prepare to kick off in May.
The team announced Tuesday that the current Seattle Sounders FC goalkeeper will head down south to San Diego and earn the starting keeper’s role.
“We’ve been extremely fortunate to have three top-class goalkeepers represent SD Loyal in our short history,” said Landon Donovan, EVP of Soccer Operations and First Team Manager. “Trey will continue that excellence and give us the ability to compete for trophies in 2021. We are excited to have him join our club.”
Muse attended the University of Indiana, where he earned multiple honors, including Big Ten All-Freshman Team, Big Ten Goalkeeper of the year, MAC Herman semifinalist, and most notably, 2018 First Team All-American.
As a freshman, Muse led the entire NCAA in goals-against average (0.26), shutouts (18), and save percentage (90.3).
Muse signed with the Seattle Sounders FC ahead of the 2019 season and started 21 matches in 22 appearances. After his rookie campaign, Muse was named one of the 10 goalkeepers to watch the USL Championship last season.

The Kentucky Native also has an appearance with the United States Men’s U-20 National Team.
“I am so excited to be joining the club in their second season,” said Muse. “I’m looking forward to building on the progress that was made last year, and work to bring a championship to San Diego.”
With his stature at 6-foot-4, Muse will use his height and wingspan to help continue shutting down opponents on the attack.

Muse is currently the only goalkeeper on the roster. Expect Donovan and the Loyal to continue shaping up Team 1 ahead of the May start date.
