Warren "Mitch" Mitchell
WARREN MITCHELL 1936-2014
by John Burke- Executive Director On the 14th of November we in the coaching profession lost one of our greatest ambassadors when Warren Mitchell passed into the afterlife. There will be many accolades and dedications from the multitudes of those who held ‘Mitch’ in high esteem and looked to him as a father, husband, mentor, coach and athlete, all well deserved. For those of us in the coaching profession he was so much more than any coach most of us have ever known or known of. Without Warren there would be no Colorado High School Coaches Association. There would be no CHSCA Hall of Fame, All-State Games, million dollar insurance coverage, Colorado Coach magazine, or Multi-Sport clinic.
Warren Mitchell was the penultimate professional. Always properly dressed, able to speak in a manner that oozed confidence and projecting an image of one who always seems to be on third base heading for home, Warren and some of his colleagues saved the Colorado High School Coaches Association when it was on shaky ground. For this all coaches in our state should be forever grateful.
Thanks, Warren for the life you led and the leadership you provided.
The Warren Mitchell Funeral is 10:30 at Limon High School on Friday.
59 years as a Track Coach, 25 years as a Basketball and Football Coach, Cross Country Coach and even 2 years as a Baseball Coach and much, much more.
Donations may be made to the Limon Education Foundation.
