Player Bio

Junior Club: Mooroolbark (VIC)
Debut: 2002
Recruited from: Box Hill Hawks (VFL)
Clubs: Hawthorn (2002-2015: 307 games) 
Brownlow votes: 220 (Equal 2nd all-time)

Shortly after winning his fifth best and fairest for Hawthorn, Mitchell was traded to the Eagles in one of the biggest coups in AFL football. At 34, he is still one of the finest players in the competition. He averaged 29.6 disposals in 2016 and polled 16 Brownlow votes. Mitchell is ultra-professional with his preparation, but his razor-sharp football nous and dual-sided skills make him hard to quell, be it in the midfield or across half-back where he loves to organise and distribute. There will be a time when Mitchell’s output declines, but there are no indications it will be anytime soon.
