Muema has been an essential part of the Aztecs success the last three seasons, after taking over the starting running back role for former Aztec Ronnie Hillman who also left early for the NFL Draft back in 2012.
Muema had his breakout year last season when he was named second team All-Mountain West and rushed for 1,458 yards, the eighth-most ever by an Aztec in a single season and 16 touchdowns.
This season Muema while fighting through multiple injuries has rushed for 1,015 yards and 12 touchdowns.
True Freshman Donnel Pumphrey who has rushed for 750 yards and 8 touchdowns this season as the Aztecs complimentary back to Muema is expected to fill Muema’s role as the teams full-time back next season.
