The South Side Archers were a relatively young team last season, but still managed to battle against quality opponents and post a strong season while still learning and growing on the varsity level. One of those players who did just that himself is Kamron Mitchell, who will come into his season a big threat in the the SAC.
Mitchell kicked off the year with some hot shooting, which ended up getting him labeled as just the team’s shooter. That’s not a bad label to have and Mitchell can sure knock it down, hitting a team high 31 three pointers along the way. But he has developed into so much more than that, both over the course of last season and over this summer. He will head into 2019-2020 as one of the stronger developing players in the Summit Athletic Conference as he increased his ability to get to the rim and finish, even playing a little bit above the rim. His length, vertical and enthusiasm at the basket will also help this team replace rebounding that they need; he averaged 3.7 rebounds per game last season.
Mitchell will be looked at to be one of the big scorers for the Archers too, although they have a decent wealth of options. He averaged 11.7 points per game last season that was second best on the team but he will be the top returning scorer this season where he will follow up shooting 61.2 percent from inside the arc. He also was good for a couple of assists and a steal per game last season.
“Now that he has a year of varsity experience under his belt we hope to see his numbers increase and he can become a consistent option,” South Side coach JJ Foster said.
