With more than 100 career wins under his belt, Discovery Canyon High School Football Coach Shawn Mitchell has spent a lot of time outside. While March and April in Colorado often means lots of snow, Mitchell has his players getting ready for a season that doesn’t start for another six months.
“We spend some time with them in the weight room and then we do some drills in the afternoon. But once the season rolls around, we’re with them every day from 3 – 6 p.m.” he said.
In addition to the century-mark for wins, Mitchell’s teams have met some goals themselves. The Thunder have made the playoffs six straight years, including a trip to the 3A State Championship Game in the 2016 season. In 2018, they have a senior-heavy offense that averaged nearly 300 yards and 27 points per game in 2017.
