Ervin was one of the stars of the great Mule soccer teams of the mid-1990s.

Ervin also earned all-region honors twice, making the first team in 1997 after scoring 39 points – the most by a Mule in the last 30 years.

Muhlenberg compiled a record of 60-13-10 during Ervin's career and won three CC championships. He scored five career postseason goals, with three coming in 1-0 NCAA Tournament wins – the most notable in triple overtime at Messiah in 1995 during the Mules' run to the national semifinals.

Ervin was inducted into the Muhlenberg College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2017.
