News10NBC likes to profile some of the best and brightest athletes in the Rochester area.
When it comes to boys volleyball in section V, and in New York state for that matter, no team has been better over the past couple years than the one that this week's scholar athlete plays for.
The Penfield Patriots start tournament play for their third straight title! Yes, their third straight sectional title, but also their third straight state title.
"It's there for sure, every team is going to play you with all they got. You're going to get every team's best game," said Mike Mitchell, senior.
The target is definitely square on the back of the Patriot's volleyball team, but senior Mike Mitchell likes it that way, after all, teams are gunning for Penfield because the Patriots have been the best for a number of years.
"You know that you're coming into a program that has high expectations, but that elevates your play because you know you're expected to be great."
Mike is great in more things than just volleyball. He was also on the Penfield sectional championship lacrosse team last spring and is also a member of the National Honor Society.
"Our school sets a high standard, to be in that is something special and an honor."
Best of luck in both of your sports!
Congratulations Mike Mitchell, the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the Week presented by Nixon Peabody and the IDE Family of Dealerships.
