Player Profile: Robert Mitchell
At 6'5'' and 185 lbs, Mitchell may be our most tenacious rebounder! His feel for the game is extraordinary, and he makes the most of his size. Yes, Robert Mitchell is truly one of a kind!! Except, of course, he's not. In fact, "Robert Mitchell" may be the most common name in the Anglo-Saxon tradition.
In honor of Stix and his incredible play of late, we'd like to spotlight Robert Mitchell #845.
Robert Mitchell (14 December 1913 – November 1996) was a British water polo player who competed in the 1936 Summer Olympics. He was part of the British team which finished eighth in the 1936 tournament. He played all seven matches.
