What They're Saying About MO MITCHELL

"He's the guy that if you're walking down a back-alley street and someone's going to jump you, you want him beside you. Mo has to work a little bit just like we all do, but at least we are going to be there together. And there's not a person that I'd rather have beside me: a big, strong, physical guy." (August 10, 2004)
Mike Degory, UF Center

"As you can see, he gets excited and plays with some emotion there. Mo could possibly have a chance to be on defense." (April 13, 2003)

"You have Mo back there talking and yapping. That was one of the reasons I wanted to move him over there in the spring. Mo loves to play the game." (August 13, 2003)

"He loves to play the game. Mo loves to play on Saturdays. He's a big guy and just his leadership this summer and what he's done out here, I'm looking for some big things out of Mo." (August 11, 2004)
Ron Zook, former UF Head Coach
