MEMPHIS, TN - This Saturday the 8th Annual Whitehaven Classic -- three games involving the six Whitehaven area high school football teams -- will take place at Whitehaven Stadium. The first two games should be good, but the game between Mitchell and Whitehaven should be a Classic. Both teams are very strong and could compete for state titles -- Mitchell in Class 2A and Whitehaven in 6A.

Saturday's Schedule

5:30 p.m. -- Fairley vs. Hillcrest

8 p.m. -- Mitchell vs. Whitehaven

Lindrell Mitchell

EAST ENGLISH VILLAGE PREP - DETROIT, MI

 

tigers CITYBALLER COLUMNIST JOEY GIBS

DETROIT, MI -There is one word that best describes East Indian Village wide receiver Lindrell Mitchell... BEAST.

Here is a guy who's the epitome of everything you want in a football player. At 5'11, he has good height for a 16 year old junior receiver. When looking at how he navigates through coverages and eludes would-be tacklers, you can tell that his on-field vision is amazing.

"I think the best parts of my game are my vision and my hands. I have good, clean route running, & I catch the ball really well in traffic. I can catch the ball, get tackled, and still hold on to it. I'm real physical too."

Mitchell is coming off a sophomore year where he racked up 1000+ yards, 66 receptions, and 5 touchdowns. If he improves his speed, he could not only replicate, but could easily obliterate those stats. Also, with the character, personality, and positive attitude he exudes, he can help his team to be successful as a whole.

"I'm a team player. I don't ever hold anything against anybody. If somebody messes up, I'm not going to talk down about them, or anything like that. I have a good on-field personality. I'm not ever really mad or anything. I just lift my team up and go on to the next play."

Touting a 3.6 grade point average, Lindrell is obviously a smart kid. On top of that, he's ambitious and hungry. He alluded to his goals for the upcoming season.

" I plan on going all-state and all-city. I plan on having more than 10 touchdowns. I want to have more than 66 receptions, because I had that last year. So, I want more than that. I want more than 1,000 yards. I want to win the state championship. The city championship is fine, but I want to win the state because my coach has never won one. So, I want to do that for him."

From what's been seen, Mitchell is nice on and off the field, hungry, and smart. If he continues on this path, and maintains the urge to improve, he can become one of the best receivers to ever play. I believe that he can do it.

    High School Football - AUGUST 6, 2014

    Mark Patritto

    ADAMS HIGH - ROCHESTER HILLS, MI

     

    tigers CITYBALLER COLUMNIST JOEY GIBS

    DETROIT, MI - The Rochester Adams Highlanders are looking to make some real noise this football season. Coming into his sophomore year, wide receiver/Cornerback Mark Patritto looks to play a huge role in the accomplishment of that goal.

    Standing at 5'11 and 150 lbs., Patritto is a big target, yet, he remains a threat in the slot position. He possesses deceptive speed, shiftiness, and quick feet. He has a knack for getting open and reeling in the football.

    "I think my strong points are probably my hands and my route running," he proclaimed.

    Patritto is a product of a football father. His dad, Tony Patritto is the head varsity coach of his team.

    "My dad coached me while I was growing up. So, I'm comfortable with him coaching me now. He pushes me harder and expect more out of me, but, it's because it helps me to improve. I definitely want to improve on getting stronger, I want to gain more weight, and I want to get faster. I just want to make him proud. So, he's my motivation."

    Patritto looks to build on a freshman season where he burst on the same as a touchdown machine. He had 10 touchdowns last season... 6 receiving and 4 rushing.

    "This year, I'm looking to keep up on varsity, and hopefully gain a starting position. I just want to play my role and do anything to help us win."

    In the words of the late, great Al Davis... "Just win, baby."
