Former Calhoun standout Jason Muehling recorded eight tackles as his high school coach and mentor Coach Jim Kremer looked on. Muehling said that having his coach in the stands made him feel like when he played for the Yellow Jackets from 2004 to 2006.
Since he left Calhoun, Muehling has fared well at Tusculum. He has totaled 85 tackles over three seasons, 12 of which were for a loss. He has seven sacks, and four fumble recoveries. One if his fumble recoveries resulted in a 60-yard touchdown. The TD came against Western Carolina this season.
In 2009, Muehling played in nine games, including starts in his last six contests. He tallied 35 tackles, including three for loss. He had a career high seven tackles twice. He made solo stops in one of those games.
After the season he received the Super Pioneer Award (above 250-pounds), and was named a Pioneer Elite for being one of the strongest players on the team. He posted a power clean max at 370-pounds
Muehling made four appearances for the Pioneers in 2008. He finished with seven tackles, including two for loss, both sacks. He was again named as a Pioneer Elite, posting two of the best squat (555-pounds) and clean (345-pounds) totals on the team during preseason testing.
Muehling is majoring in physical education with a minor in history. He plans to be a high school football coach after graduate school. He is the son of Sue Whittaker (Ranger) and Paul Muehling (Clearwater, Fla.).
