A Little About Mitch:
Mitch often makes sport of watching football, baseball, soccer and hockey. Participating in these sports brings him joy. Ask him about media based entertainment, perhaps you have similar interests, don’t be shy, he enjoys finding new music, and TV shows. Specific sustenance makes his tummy joyful: Five Guys burgers, deep dish pizza, half chocolate half strawberry milkshakes, and popcorn.
Mitch’s Life Goals:
- to be a baseball play-by-play broadcaster
- host his own sports talk radio show
- inspire kids who can’t play for whatever reason and show them they can still be involved in the game
- design his own line of men’s wear, suits and ties type stuff
- find “the one” and fall madly in love
Interesting Things about Mitch:
His dad wanted to name him “Jay,” just like Gatsby, which has sparked an interest within him. Thus led to his nickname the Great Gatzke. He is “a total city slicker” as said by Mitch himself. His left leg has a permanent steel rod in it which repaired a broken tibia he suffered from while playing football in his junior year of high school. This is a private high school mind you, 48 people in his graduating class.
He dresses very well. Every day of his senior year he has sported exquisite taste in attire that has the campus talking and complimenting. “He got swag,” said an anonymous student admirer. He was a member of the 2011 University Liggett baseball team which won Michigan’s Division 4 State Championship. Also, Mitch is the ultimate upper hand and gentle controlling force of 96.1 WBWH FM and BlufftonConnection.com.
