Congratulations to Marcus Mitchell Jr, a 5’9” 225 Running Back at Flagler Palm Coast High School who was selected as the Florida Player of the Week.
Cat Bradley, Assistant Girl’s Soccer Coach at Flagler Palm Coast, stated in her nomination, “Marcus Mitchell is only a junior and breaking records and making a name for himself. On Friday night [9/15] in a high intense, in county rival game. Flagler Palm Coast played the Matanzas Pirates. Marcus scored 4 touchdowns and had 288 yds rushing. It was the Marcus Mitchell show all night long. A poised and humble young man had the stadium in cheers and applause all night long. He was literally running through pirates defense all night. This is just the beginning for Marcus. As they say, he’s built differently”.
Marcus is working hard in the classroom as well and has a 3.3 GPA. He also participates in FHS7v7A during the offseason.
