Centennial's Anna Mitchell, named as a player to watch in this year's Howard County girls soccer preview, is off to a fast start. In the Eagles' first three games, the junior forward has racked up three goals and five assists.
In 2012, Mitchell scored seven times, collecting three assists. This season, she looks poised to take those numbers to the next level.
While detailing his outlook on the season, Centennial coach Steve Baxter said that he expects Mitchell to lead the offense again this year.
As the Eagles look to continue their hot start in county play, Mitchell took some time to discuss some of her interests off the field.
