“It was worse here. There were more fights,” said Mitchel. “And fewer kids in the hallway.”
Mitchel played linebacker and wide receiver on a Mack team that won the Oakland Athletic League Silver Bowl three years in a row. A 2008 graduate, he attends Alameda and Laney, where he studies architecture.
Inspired by his law class, he remembers a guest speaker, a female lawyer, encouraging him to achieve and work hard at whatever he sets his mind on. Right on, his dream is to become a firefighter.
