The Wilmington College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee named football player Brandon Mitchell as its Player of the Week, for the period ending September 6, 2015.
Mitchell (Pittsburgh, PA/Fox Chapel) hauled in the winning touchdown pass from Austin Jarbo with a minute remaining as Wilmington snapped a 23-game losing streak with a 14-10 victory over Bluffton. Five days after moving to receiver, Mitchell finished with five catches for 108 yards and one touchdown.
In recognition of his accomplishments, he will receive a T-shirt from SAAC, and his photo and list of accomplishments will be displayed in the lobby of Hermann Court.
The Student Athlete Advisory Committee is a committee made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight about the student-athlete experience. SAAC protects student-athlete interests and provides a positive image of student-athletes.
