Bocce, table tennis and volleyball are a passion for Heart of Texas area athlete, Mitchell Stephens. The 23 year old from Temple has higher self esteem, improved social interaction, a stronger commitment to what's important to him and more friends since becoming a SOTX competitor. He just became an athlete in 2013, but Stephens' life has improved for the better, thanks to the organization.

When he's not busy raking in medals, Stephens enjoys plaing video games, watching football and attending high school sporting events. His mom, Shannon, volunteers at area events and competitions.
