AU commit stays positive despite injury


HOOVER, Ala. -- ESPN 300 tight end Jakell Mitchell (Opelika, Ala./Opelika) suffered a torn ACL just weeks ago, but that didn’t stop him from joining his team in Hoover last week for the National Select 7-on-7 tournament. He has embraced his new role of mentor and coach for the time being, until he can get back on the field again.
