Darriante Mitchell

School: Buchholz

Sport: Football

Position: Quarterback

Height: 6-foot-1

Weight: 215 pounds

College chosen: Waldorf College (Forest City, Iowa)

Other schools considered: Miles College (Fairfield, Ala.), Iowa Wesleyan College (Mount Pleasant, Iowa), Trinity International University (Deerfield, Ill.)

Stats: Because of injuries, one of several Bobcat quarterbacks used last season, completing 21 of 70 passes for 456 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions. Completed six passes for 199 yards with a TD and interception in a 21-13 loss to Santa Fe. Also had a tackle against Columbia.

Quotable: “They (Waldorf) told me they didn't have a quarterback, and I liked the type of schemes they run with their offensive playbook with the no huddle and spreading the ball out. Even though it was tough last year with losing all those games, it was worth it at the end. I still had a lot of fun.” — Darriante Mitchell
