Redskins Super Bowl Champion Brian Mitchell never took anything for granted. As the youngest of seven children raised in a small Louisiana town, Brian saw the value in applying himself to both education and athletics. His perseverance paid off, attending the University of Southwestern Louisiana and starting his football career as a quarterback. More than a decade after his retirement, he remains the NFL's second-all-time leader in total yardage and is considered one of the greatest return specialists in NFL history.
Today, Brian is well known for his straight-talking style on his several media obligations for Audacy and The Commanders. Never one to shy away from hard work, Brian continues to serve the community through charity events and personal appearances and is ready to deliver his unique brand of inspiration and motivation wherever it is needed.
