Trenton Mitchell

By Kasey Bubnash

Allan Hancock College sophomore Trenton Mitchell has been a force for his school's flourishing basketball program this season.

Towering over the competition at 6 feet 6 inches, Mitchell has proven himself as both a consistent rebounder and scorer, averaging about eight rebounds and seven points a game, according to Anthony Cooper, Hancock's sports information specialist. That high-level skill recently landed Mitchell on the school's all-tournament team, after an astonishing performance during the Hancock College Holiday Classic Tournament in December 2018. 

There, the forward averaged eight points and 11 rebounds, and in one game against San Jose City College, racked up a total of 19 rebounds. 

Cooper said that's the kind of work that has helped the team make gains this season. Mitchell's team is now 13-2, and is ranked No. 10 in the state.
