Player Bio

At A Glance

Junior Clubs: Marist
Clubs: Port Adelaide (2013 Rookie Draft, Pick 5)
Debut: Rd 1, 2013 v Melbourne
Recruited from: Claremont
Brownlow votes:

He didn’t follow the script of Samson when losing his trademark locks last year and took a big step forward in his development, earning a permanent position on Port’s senior list. Mitchell’s speed and endurance are the keys to his game, and he has made significant headway in improving his foot skills, too. He was named emergency six times last year and will hope to become a more regular contributor this season.

Background

  • Mitchell was taken with pick #5 in the 2013 Rookie Draft
  • He won the 2012 Sandover Medal playing for Claremont in the WAFL

 

Season by Season

Season by Season

Mitchell’s outstanding early-season SANFL form helped him force his way into the AFL side in Round 8 against Fremantle. The upgraded rookie had an instant impact with two excellent goals and 20 disposals. His form with the Power faded slightly later in the season, but he returned to have a good impact for the Magpies in the finals.

Mitchell found himself back on the senior list twice in 2013 and managed to debut in Round 1 against Melbourne where his hard running found favour with Port Adelaide's supporters.

Despite lacking in his defensive game, he worked hard to play as many games as possible and with further improved in 2014 will have a bright future at Alberton.
