Scott Mitchell: I Belong

When the Miami Dolphins selected Scott Mitchell in the fourth round of the 1990 NFL Draft, the University of Utah alumnus was convinced he was destined for a back-up roll. Three years later, however, an Achilles tendon injury suffered by Dan Marino thrust Mitchell into the role he had always dreamed of. In this episode, Mitchell discusses the influence of Marino and legendary head coach Don Shula, his whirlwind experience during the 1993 season, and valuable lessons he learned from his failures and challenges that he believes have shaped him into the person he is today. Contributors to this episode include Sevach Melton and Dolphins Productions. Theme song created and performed by The Honorable SoLo D. The Fish Tank is Presented by iHeart Radio.
