Mike Mitchell 

Mitchell was an outstanding baseball, track and bas­ketball player at Mars Hill Bible School from 1971­-74. He made numerous All-Area teams during his playing days, but in coaching at Mars Hill, his legacy is profound. 

As a baseball coach, his teams claimed five area cham­pionships and finished runner-up to the "blue map" an incredible four times. However, as the girls' basket­ball coach, those "red maps" turned blue as his teams won five state titles. Eleven area and six region cham­pionships were icing on the cake as his teams compiled a 380-119 record through 17 seasons. 

He was named the Times Daily Coach of the year twice, ASWA Coach of the year in 1989, and was a coach in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star game in 1991 and 1996. Mitchell left Mars Hill in the fall of 2000 to coach in Georgia.
