Earl Mitchell

More than five years after leaving the UA for an NFL career, Earl Mitchell returns to campus with his mother and sister for Commencement, celebrating the completion of a longtime goal.  Before the second semester of his senior year at the UA, Mitchell made what he describes as one of the hardest decisions of his life, leaving school to begin training full time in preparation for the NFL Draft. He was “on a roll” with his studies, he says, and it wasn’t easy to walk away.
