2013 Parade Grand Marshal
MITCHELL ATHLETICS, COACHES & PLAYERS
Mitchell has had many outstanding athletes come in and out of the school doors throughout the years.
Many continued their athletic careers in college and even some made it to the pros. Two past Mitchell High School athletes who will be recognized in this year’s parade include Terry Cole and Paul Stroud.
Terry, now deceased was a standout football player for Mitchell who went on to play in the NFL for the Miami Dolphins and other teams. He will be represent- ed on the grand marshal float by family members. Paul was a standout basketball player for Mitchell and he still holds the school record for scoring 56 points in one game. He played college basketball at Indiana State and went on to play for the New York Nationals and Washington Generals teams, which played against the Harlem Globetrotters. He came back to Mitchell to teach, and he coached the boys basketball team for several years. Paul will be riding on the grand marshal float in the parade.
Others who you will see on the grand marshal float include many past and pres- ent coaches and athletes of Mitchell along with some future Mitchell athletes. All Mitchell athletes are winners, as they represent our school very well. Mitchell has also had some very good coaches who have helped make our athletes better people in sports and in life.
