Hometown Heroes – Matt Mitchell, Winston-Salem State U

October 15, 2007 at 9:36 am Leave a comment


Not all the hometown sports heroes play (or played) baseball, some played football. One recent graduate, Matt Mitchell, has made an immediate impact for the Winston-Salem State University as a placekicker for the football team.

Mitchell, a 2006 South Point grad and East/West All-Star, has contributed to the WSSU team by elevating the kicking game for the Rams.

Mitchell kicked a game-winning field goal on September 15 in Baltimore, MD against Morgan State, leading the Rams to a 19-17 victory.

Mitchell is the older brother of Joey Mitchell, a sophomore soccer player at SPHS. Matt Mitchell also played soccer through middle school and was recruited to play football as a placekicker when he got to the high school.
