Coach Lance Hudak’s quote: “He is one of the most mature, respectful and intelligent young men to come through our program. He will be truly missed as an athlete, a leader and a role model for our entire student body. Athletically, Mitch is still a raw talent with his best years yet to come. He possesses the natural gifts of size, strength and agility, which are innate of a D1 collegiate thrower. With his eagerness to learn and the guidance he will receive from the Red Flash coaches, the sky is the limit to what he can accomplish in Loretto. And, a top-notch honor student, Mitchell gets it done in the classroom as well. With the prestigious education Saint Francis has to offer, he will strive academically and earn the building blocks necessary for a very successful life. We are proud of him for what he has, and is yet, to accomplish.”
