Mo, as his friends and teammates still call him, averaged 25 points and 12 rebounds per game during his career at Xaverian, and 30 points and 14 rebounds per game during his senior year. As a junior and senior, Mullin was named to All-American teams by McDonald's, Parade Magazine, and Eastern Basketball. As a senior, Mullin was recognized by the Hertz Company as the number one high school athlete in New York State.

As a senior, he averaged 33 points and 18 boards per game in helping legendary coach Jack Curran earn his first city championship. Known for working harder than anybody else at both ends of the floor.
