Junior forward and Henderson native Danny Musovski is certainly one of the top players in UNLV men’s soccer history, and one of the most honored athletes at UNLV after earning second-team All-American honors in 2015 while also picking up WAC Player of the Year recognition, and was one the MAC Hermann Trophy Watch List in 2016 as well. His accomplishments at UNLV include leading the Rebels to three conference titles over the past three years (one WAC regular season, two WAC tournament titles), and two bids to the NCAA Tournament as well, including in 2016 when he helped the team reach the second round.
Playing soccer since he was only four years old, Musovski’s father played an impactful role as a mentor to his son. His father is not his only motivator; he strives for success in hope of not letting his family or coaches down either. He describes his position as center forward as the position with most pressure, and works hard to score goals to keep himself in the game. With being named Nevada Gatorade Player of the Year, Las Vegas Review-Journal Soccer Athlete of the Year, setting Nevada high school records and League player of the year in his high school years alone, Musovski has certainly “produced” the way he describes.
Following his high school achievements, Danny is grateful for his UNLV scholarship and utilizes it as a great opportunity to play at the collegiate level. While taking this next year to earn his business degree and play his final season, Danny will be entering the 2018 draft in hopes of being one of the first five picks.
Senior outside hitter Sadie Stutzman not only performed on the court for the UNLV volleyball team but also in the classroom.
The four-year letterwinner from Fruitland, Idaho, was a member of the winningest senior class in program history. From 2013-16, the Rebels won a combined 82 matches, which included a program-best 26 victories in 2014 and 24 more fromthe 2016 campaign.
Stutzman capped off her playing tenure at UNLV with participation in all 32 matches with career bests in kills (263), assisted blocks (49) and total blocks (51). More impressively, she helped lead the Rebels to the program’s second appearance in NCAA Tournament play and the team’s first postseason triumph – a 3-1 upset of No. 22 Utah in Provo, Utah.
Off the court, Stutzman has served as a member of UNLV’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for four years with the last two as the organization’s president. Additionally, she has been a recipient of the Mountain West’s Scholar-Athlete Award three times. She has also earned a spot on the Fall Academic All-Mountain West Team once.
Currently, she is serving an internship with McCarthy Building working on the UNLV HAB Project Site. As part of her internship, she assists the project engineers with document control, material procurement and clarifications of construction documents.
