Scholar Athlete | John Mitchell, SJ

Posted on August 28, 2018

John Mitchell, Senior at South Jones High School, was selected as a South Central Sports Medicine Scholar Athlete. John plays both football and baseball at South Jones. After John graduates in May, he hopes to continue playing baseball or football at a collegiate level while pursuing his dream of becoming a lawyer.

If John could meet one professional athlete it would be Tom Brady. “I would love to just listen to him talk about the game of football.” John’s advice to younger athletes is to play every game like it could be the last. The goal john has for the upcoming season is to be a better leader and make it to the playoffs.

South Central Sports Medicine presents the 2018-19 Class of Scholar Athletes. Senior Athletes were selected by Athletic Directors of their respective schools. Athletes were selected based on their leadership on and off the playing field, their attitude of sportsmanship and grade point average. South Central Sports Medicine congratulates each athlete for their dedication to their sport and their school.
