Eastview senior Martin Mitchell had efforts of 26 and 30 points last week, and his community came out to support. Much like how the fans helped Martin with gameday support, they likewise voted him to the top of last week’s Player of the Week voting, presented by Wisconsin Dells.
Unfortunately, Mitchell and Eastview lost their first round section game against Burnsville, 70-67. But his basketball career is far from over; he will suit up at Augsburg next year.
“Martin is a guy who can give you instant offense,” his summer coach Blake Nicols said. “He has great range on his shot and is very tough attacking the basket, finishing well and also drawing fouls to get to the line where he is a great free throw shooter.
“Above all else, he’s a gym rat. He has earned the success he has gotten through countless hours in the gym.”
Keep your eyes peeled for the next round of Player of the Week candidates, to be released later today.
