Mitchell Chosen as Senior Male Athlete of the Year

Genesee Community College men's basketball guard Ervin Mitchell (Brooklyn, NY) was named the Senior Male Athlete of the Year by the Western New York Athletic Conference (WNYAC) for 2014-2015.

Mitchell became the 10th player in GCC men's basketball history to garner NJCAA All-American honors as he was named to the All-American Second Team this past season. He was also an All-Region III First Team selection and named all-state by the Basketball Coaches Association of New York (BCANY) this year.

He leaves GCC as the program's all-time leading scorer with 1476 points. He tallied 723 points in his freshman campaign and 753 points as a sophomore this year.

Mitchell played in and started 32 games this season for the Cougars and averaged 23.5 points per game, the ninth-best average in the country, and recorded double-digit point totals in all but one contest.

Genesee played to a 23-10 overall record in 2014-2015, which included a Region III championship, District II championship and the first appearance in the NJCAA National Tournament in 12 years.

Mitchell plans to attend Division I Grambling State University in the fall on an athletic scholarship.
