The John Curtis football program led by J.T. Curtis is one of the most successful programs not only in Louisiana but in the entire country with their 26 state championships and the number of players that have gone on to have great careers at the collegiate level and the professional level.

Even though Mitchell is a fantastic running back, he could have admitted that he could not do it without his offensive line especially Senior OT Steven Vallot.
