Mitchell was selected by the Boston Cannons as a first round selection (8th overall) in the 2007 MLL Draft Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft. On July 14, 2007, he netted a rookie season-high four goals against the Chicago Machine. Prior to the 2008 MLL season, Mitchell was traded to the San Francisco Dragon. In the NLL, the Philadelphia Wings drafted Mitchell in the Second Round (25th overall) in the 2007 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft. A true left-handed attackman/forward, Mitchell tallied 11 goals and 13 assists in just eight games for Philadelphia in 2008.
“Mitchell a/k/a Moose is just plain nasty,” says rep Matthew Norfolk, who is also a graduate of Cornell and past Big Red lacrosse player. “He is a joy to watch on the field. With great instincts to get open and shoot even when covered, his shot is like no other I’ve ever seen.”
