So his Mustangs sent him out the only way they know how: with a Gatorade shower. "I knew this would be my last year back in the summer," Schmitz said. "I'm just tired." Mitchell (5-5, 0-3) controlled the game throughout with power running for 247 yards and held on for a 24-7 win over Sunlake. After a 31-yard field goal from freshman Codi Folsom, Ryan Gallagher gave the Mustangs a 10-0 lead on a 6-yard run at the end of the half. Mitchell came out in the third quarter and drove down the field, burning seven minutes before Marlow Bradham scored from 12 yards out for a 17-0 lead. After the Seahawks cut the lead to 10 early in the fourth on a 3-yard run from Mike Shaver, Mitchell running back James Hamilton scored on a 5-yard run to put the game away. Gallagher had 13 rushes for 83 yards and Hamilton ran for 76 yards on just 14 carries in his only start of the season. The Sunlake (1-9, 0-5) offense was quiet against a stiff Mitchell line, totaling just 141 yards. This was the 26th season as a head coach for Schmitz and 31st overall. He knows he has been blessed to have coached for so long and envisions good things for his successor. "I've been able to do something that I absolutely love for 31 years, and it doesn't get any better than that," Schmitz said. "It's just time and I know the next football coach is going to have a great group of kids here."
