    I met Steve one time in 2003 at Cameron when Nick Horvath played at Duke. Horvath was a Minnesota kid and friend of the family. Steve's story was very secretive around the Duke program....few outsiders knew of his connection to K. All I was ever told was that a "secret bond" existed between him and K. That article told me more than I ever knew. It was never broadcasted to anybody what the relationship or connection was....you just knew it something special.

    May Steve RIP.

    So much warmth and love in that story about an incredible person, his family, a coach, and his players. RIP, Mr. Mitchell.
