Player Bio

At A Glance

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

A mature-age pick in the 2013 Rookie Draft, Mitchell was elevated to the senior list twice and proved an immediate fan favourite with the blistering pace and long locks quickly gaining him a cult following. With a great mix of speed and endurance. The hard-running midfielder will continue on the rookie list again in 2014 and look for an opportunity to earn elevation again.

Mitchell played in Claremont's 2012 WAFL premiership side and won the 2012 Sandover Medal for the league's best and fairest.

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 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.
