Preseason training camp is just around the corner for Lehigh, and it's a mere 40 days until the Mountain Hawks' season opener vs. Central Connecticut State.
When we started out, sophomore LB Matt Laub, using last year's numbers, was at No. 92 in the countdown. Since then, he was reassigned No. 40, and No. 92 was reassigned to an incoming freshman. (You can see Matthew Laub's position in the countdown here.)
So at no. 40, we will honor instead incoming freshman DL Jimmy Mitchell as our highlighted Lehigh football athlete today.

Fun Fact: His older brother WR Ryan Mitchell, who also went to Lyons will be starting his senior season at Penn this fall. "Their father Tom Michell is a former college football coach and has been an assistant coach on Kurt Weinberg’s staff at Lyons," the Chicago Sun-Times said when announcing Jimmy's commitment to Lehigh.
