2013: Schmidt after an injury-marred 2012 campaign bounced back in full force, putting together a season worthy of his first MLL All-Star nod. The defenseman in 14 regular-season games recorded 40 groundballs, two goals (including a 2-pointer) and one assist. Schmidt collected another five groundballs in the postseason.
2012: The Hounds acquired Schmidt in Nov. 2011, through a trade with the Denver Outlaws. Unfortunately, the defenseman missed the first half of the franchise's inaugural season after tearing his pectoral muscle in the offseason. He was able to play in five games at the end of the year, recording one goal, one assist and nine groundballs.
2011: Schmidt was drafted by the Denver Outlaws in the third round (15th overall) of the 2011 Collegiate Draft. He played in seven games for the Outlaws, scooping up 14 groundballs.
Collegiate: In four years at Maryland, Schmidt played in 63 games, collecting 127 groundballs to go with 79 forced turnovers. The defenseman served as team captain in his senior season, and also was honored that year as All-ACC and USILA Second Team All-American. As a junior in 2010, Schmidt was named All-ACC and USILA Third Team All-American, while also earning the Decker-Silber award as the Terps' top defenseman.
