LaRosas Hall of Fame: Ragland & Mitchell are MVP's

Princeton's Kelsey Mitchell and Moeller's Gus Ragland joined the select group of LaRosa's high school most valuable players of the year during Sunday's hall of fame banquet at WCET Studios.

Mitchell, an Ohio State basketball signee, was the nation's consensus No. 1 point guard for the 2014 class. As a four-year varsity starter, Mitchell became Princeton's all-time leading scorer with more than 2,000 points. She led the Vikings to the Division I state basketball championship last season.

"I think it's a great accomplishment. I appreciate all that LaRosa's has done for me in regards to winning this award," Mitchell said. "I'm grateful and thankful for my family and friends that have supported me."

Mitchell's time at Ohio State will be a family affair. Her twin sister Chelsea is also a member of the 2014 recruiting class while her dad, Mark, is an assistant coach for the Buckeyes.

"It's a great opportunity for me and my family as far as having support," said Mitchell, who was named Enquirer Player of the Year the past three seasons. "It will be cool to have people from Cincinnati come support me at Ohio State for my college career."

Along with being chosen to several All-American teams, Mitchell also added an Ohio Ms. Basketball award to her collection as a senior.

Ragland was a three-sport star at Moeller, playing football, basketball and baseball. The 2013 Associated Press Division I co-offensive player of the year led Moeller's offense at quarterback and helped bring home football state championships in both 2012 and 2013.

"It's obviously a great honor. Just to be in the same room as the nominees is a huge honor," Ragland said. "It's a great feeling."

Ragland credits the people at Moeller for giving him the opportunity to be selected as a LaRosa's MVP.

"I'm very thankful for the opportunities I had at Moeller and the positions they put me in to win things like this," said Ragland, who was a baseball state champion and first team all-Enquirer pitcher as a junior. "It has been some of the best four years of my life. It's was blessing to be around the players and coaches."

A Miami Redhawk football signee, Ragland has already moved into his dorm room and begins classes this week.

"The best is still yet to come. I couldn't be more happy to be playing for Chuck Martin at Miami," Ragland said. "I just know it's going to be a great next four years. I'm really excited about it."
