Perfection the ultimate goal

MISSION HILLS, Calif. -- USC receiver commit Steven Mitchell, like many top-tier recruits, wants the perfect season before leaving for college: Unblemished record, league championship, state title. All of that.

Mitchell, the eternal perfectionist, also has the number zero -- as in zero dropped passes -- on that list.

"My coaches always tell me to have a perfect day," said Mitchell, the nation's 13th-ranked receiver. "That means no drops."
