USF signee Mitchell wins track appeal
Good news for Terrence "T-Rex" Mitchell, the USF football signee from Hillsborough High, who had faced the possibility of missing the state track championships before a six-week suspension was reduced to just two weeks, according to this story from the Times' Joey Knight.
Mitchell, who will play cornerback at USF this fall, is one of the state's top sprinters, and the suspension would have kept him from competing in his district track meet, thus eliminating him from the regionals and state meet.
Mitchell will compete in not only the 100 meters on Friday, but also the 400 and the long and triple jumps. He was a state runner-up in the two jumping events last season.
