Lasmir Mitchell, William Penn. (Jessica Sprenkle — Daily Record/Sunday News)
A defensive captain on the William Penn football team, linebacker Lasmir Mitchell shared these details about the Bearcats in 2014 during this summer’s YAIAA media day:
The one player on your team you wouldn’t want to face: Jacob Whitfield. He’s our biggest lineman, and when he gets mad he’s pretty hard to stop.
Your least favorite practice drill: The open-field tackling because linebacker, as you know, we like to fill gaps, not tackle fast running backs and receivers in the open field.
The best nickname on the team: Darren Stephens. We call him “Junior,” “Mo,” all types of stuff. We just call him five different nicknames.
Your worst sport: There’s a lot of them. I’m going to say Ultimate Frisbee … tennis. All types of stuff like that. I’ve tried all of them before in gym class, and I suck at them.
Favorite YAIAA stadium, other than your own: Spring Grove. It gets a little foggy around that time of the year, but it’s a nice field.
