Since freshman year, Mitchell had served as the manager to the boys’ varsity basketball team. As a thank you, coach Peter Morales decided to let Marcus dress for a rivalry game against Franklin High School. Morales not only got a chance to send Marcus into the game, he also saw him score.
After several unsuccessful attempts to get Marcus to score, Franklin had possession with 13 seconds remaining. Franklin’s Jon Montanez, in an act of great sportsmanship, passed Marcus the ball and allowed him score.
