Raquan Mitchell is a basketball player, football player, and he runs track for Miami Southridge Senior High School. His first love is basketball but he’s proven to be an all around athlete. When dribbling the ball is over, Raquan handles the football field, he plays his Cornerback position quite well. Raquan will be graduating this year. This student athlete has faced many challenges.
