Welcome to The Buccaneer’s sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level.
This week, we sat down with Teddy Mitchell, a senior and a key part of the offensive unit that helped the Bucs win the B North division title on the gridiron this fall.
Name: Teddy Mitchell
Sports Played: Football
Committed to play: Football
College: Sacred Heart University (Fairfield, Connecticut)
In five years, I’ll be: in the National Football League
Bagel Order: Plain with butter
EB: Why Sacred Heart?
TM: I chose Sacred Heart because as soon as I stepped on campus, it felt
like I was home. I felt like the coaches there showed me a lot of love and attention, and I liked the team’s family atmosphere.
EB: What has RBR Football taught you?
TM: RBR Football has taught me a lot. It taught me how to really work with others, and how to really come together to form something great. We formed a brotherhood, and it was a great experience.
EB: What’s your favorite RBR sports memory?
TM: My favorite memory definitely has to be beating RBC. Everyone doubted us (coming in) and I think it was great that we pulled that off.
