BBBSCI Class of 2021: Deshaun and Derrick

Match: Little Brother Deshaun and Big Brother Derrick Mitchell 
Match Date: February 8th, 2018 
High School: Herron High School

Little Brother Deshaun and Big Brother Derrick Mitchell have been matched together for 3.5 years. Deshaun will be graduating from Herron High School this Spring. Deshaun is hoping to move out to California in the future and pursue a degree in Engineering. 

Over the years, one thing that has really brought this match together is their love of basketball. Oftentimes Deshaun and Derrick would spend their time together on the basketball court playing & catching up on each other’s lives. 

Their love of sports was not just limited to basketball however. Big Brother Derrick shared that normally, pre-COVID, the two of them loved to go to different sporting events around the city, such as Colts games, Pacers games, and more. While this past year was difficult for Deshaun and Derrick to participate in their usual activities, they worked hard to keep in touch with each other virtually throughout this last year. 

Even though they are graduating from our program this year, Big Brother Derrick shared that he can’t imagine their relationship will be changing too much in the future and that they plan to remain in each other’s lives!

Good luck in this next chapter of your life, Deshaun!
