Judging by the trackies seems a pretty laid-back character!
Highlights look good.

Be interesting if he can hit the ground running in the NEAFL. Which is probably not too far away from the level of the VIC U/18 competition.

Interesting to see Mitch was rated as high as #16 on draft boards early in 2018 but slipped out to a late rookie pick / not selected at all by the end of year. The two main knocks on him are his disposal by foot and he doesn’t get enough of it.
Seems to be a victim of his own versatility having to play numerous roles.

The main knock on Mitch was his dodgy hammy.

He has been averaging 18 touches in the TAC Cup this year.

If he is able to extract from a pack with a bit of pace a couple of times a game then he would have done his job.

That is something we are missing in our midfield is pace bursting from the middle. I love our lads they are as tough as nails, but a lot of them are very one paced. He could give us a point of difference if he can get to the level.

Mathew Lloyd coached Mitch at school level and gave him a glowing endorsement.
said the suns have picked up a 10+ year player.

Also talked about why he didn’t get picked up last year.

Sound like we just picked up other great future leader.
