Mitchell played college football and ran track at Sewanee, where he also graduated with honors and was elected track team captain and president of both the SGA and FCA. He subsequently earned a law degree and MBA at the University of Alabama, finishing in the top 30% of his law school class and ranking No. 1 in his MBA class.
Since 2007, he has also earned extraordinary experience in the business of football by working with the Southeastern Conference, Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles and the NFL Office. His NFL experiences were very broad and included legal analysis involving player contracts and the NFL CBA, contract analytics and negotiations, salary cap management, and player evaluation.
With the ideal educational background and his extensive NFL experience, Mitchell is very uniquely qualified to serve SportsTrust and our clients in the areas of legal services, contract analytics and negotiations.
Mitchell did a great job for us during his time here with the National Football League Office. His experience working in the league office and with three different NFL teams, along with his academic training, should serve SportsTrust’s clients very well in all facets of their representation.
