Mitchell was a member of 2001-2005 Moon football team, where he was awarded a full scholarship to Ohio University, Athens, Ohio. He was also awarded a track and field scholarship to University of Pittsburgh and chose football as his future. He moved onto receive his MBA at Seton Hill University on another football scholarship. He was our gentle giant and was loved by many. He was motivated to continue educating himself by reading books and researching a plethora of topics. He was honest and true to his beliefs and wasn’t afraid to share it, but would do anything for anyone and always lit up the room with his smile and sense of humor. He was a gifted and bright man that didn’t get a chance to reach his potential. Peace at last – safe in the arms of our Lord.
