The heat is officially on up north in the Upper Peninsula.

Yeah, that’s right, a scorching hot prospect with tons of promise and potential is on his way to play football at Northern Michigan University. I’m talking about Mitch Heaton , who comes from C-Town the Place to Be Town aka Clarkston. Heaton is a 6-foot-6 tight end and so, so talented.

As a junior in the Wolfpack Pigskin Den, he won a Class A state title. This year, he was a captain and major difference maker in a variety of capacities. In the "getting after it" department he was All-World!!

At the high school, Heaton played on both sides of the ball, lining up at linebacker and defensive end, too. His upside at the college level is stratospheric. This Mega Gridiron Gladiator is just starting to scratch the surface on his long, lean and mean skill set. He also plays in the post on the Clarkston hoops squad which could contend for a spot in the final four in 2016.

The UP and The C-Town HEATER is a match made in football heaven!! Burney can already picture Marvelous Mitch catching touchdowns in the snow and helping WildcatsNation to victory in the very near future.
