Brian Mitchell: He Never Backed Down

PDF icon Brian Mitchell: He Never Backed Down7.35 MB


He had an immeasurable quantity of heart and desire. He was hard-nosed, a throwback to the blue-collar NFL of the past. And he was a true leader on and off the field. Such compliments are used so loosely in sports today, but in the case of Brian Mitchell, they were oh, so, true.

Mitchell never took a play off in his 14-year NFL career, his first 10 with the Redskins. He discarded the welfare of his 5-10, 220-pound body every time he touched the ball, always seeking to make contact with defenders and even punish them.
