Churchill’s Mitch Reese Lesser Known But Getting It Done
Let's face it. 90% of all Media Coverage when it comes to football out of the State of Oregon emanates out of Portland. We cover more of the State then anyone but else at OregonPreps.com and NWPR but even with that how much can we really know.
Then there is the issue of records and strength of schedules etc. that come into play. Analysts and college coaches alike make judgments based upon these factors.
This is where it really helps for a team like Churchill and a QB like Mitch Reese to come up here to the Metropolitan area in a Playoff Game with highly charged game conditions. They get their shot to be seen and there were college coaches in attendance at the game watching.
Reese did himself a favor because the 6'3"-205 pure athlete shined Friday over at Milwaukie. And he had a really nice performance for his team leading them to a 41-20 win over a 7-2 Mustangs squad who are no joke. Reese showed patience and accuracy as a QB. He really impressed us and as we watched him in comparison to others this season we had to walk away saying he was impressive.
Now while he may not be a shoe-in for Oregon he can play and should be in the discussion for colleges looking for a kid with all the size, speed, and intangibles you could want. In the Metro League or Three Rivers or any of the more publicized leagues in the Metro this guys talent would shine.
He threw 12-16 for 123 yards and 2 TD's and ran for another 58 yards converting some big First Downs. We caught up with the 5A stud from Eugene, Oregon and logged in this Interview. Have a watch and keep this young man in mind as the Lancers move ahead into next weeks match up in the 5A OSAA Playoffs.
