excerpt: 

 

BIG STONE GAP — At 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, Union junior James Mitchell cuts a pretty imposing figure on the football field.

 

A tight end on offense and a linebacker on defense, Mitchell earned VHSL Group 2A first-team all-state honors last season after the Bears made it all the way to the state semifinals. And he has garnered a great deal of football recruiting attention from programs such as Virginia Tech, Virginia, James Madison, Duke, Clemson, Penn State and Wake Forest.

 

great state

That's fantastic !  Love seeing these kids on our end of the state get the recognition that they deserve.  I wish him all the best and can't wait to see where he decides to further his education and playing career.
