Dustin Mitchell came out of nowhere last season to lead Lutcher to the Class 3A State Championship and finished his junior campaign with over 2,700 yards and 27 touchdowns through the air.
Mitchell started fall practice as a two-way performer at linebacker and
fullback. Lutcher head coach Tim Detillier named him his starting quarterback
because of his athleticism but by the end of the season he broke the school
record for most passing yards in a season.
"When the season started he was a good athlete playing quarterback,"
Detillier told The Insiders. "When the season ended he was a pretty good
quarterback. He got better and better as the season went along."
Aside from having the size coaches drool over Mitchell also has the physical
and mental tools to make him a top Division-I prospect.
"He's got a strong arm and he is a good decision maker," Detillier
said. "He can make all of the throws. He is more of a dropback/shotgun type
but he can also run it. He's a winner and a leader. He has what you can't
Arkansas was at Lutcher on Monday for the first day of spring practice and
the Razorbacks one of the schools showing the most interest.
"I'm hearing the most from Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Tennessee, Alabama,
LSU and Arkansas," said Mitchell who is also the top pitcher on his baseball
team. "Either LSU, Ole Miss or Southern Miss would be my top choice."
Mitchell is fully qualified and plans to attend summer camps at Southern Miss, Auburn and
