Mitch Henderson was born to a life of luxury, and he has always known it. With his father and paternal uncle ran a personal clinic while his mother managed a grocery store that catered to healthy eaters, Mitch always had a steady access to food and comforts, and almost never wanted for anything in his life. However, for all their wealth and privilege, his parents both came from humble beginnings that they never forgot, and so they were both very giving people. Mitch has spent much of his life attending or catering for charitable events , and eventually began to do his own volunteer work without his parent's prompting. Mitch spent most of his teenage years in soup kitchens and at clothing drives, with his family often supplying such events, but out of everything Mitch loved nothing more than spending time with kids in need.

The Henderson family was well-known for their annual donations to a local orphanage, and Mitch spent most of his volunteer time there, working with the older children while other volunteers tended to the younger. He often assisted the kids there with their school work and counseled them through their personal problems, but he mostly oversaw their recreational activities, and he thrived when it came to teaching them about different sport games. He had a knack for nearly every game he taught them, but above all Mitch had a passion for basketball, and it wasn't long before many of the children he worked with had the same.

Mitch spent countless afternoons at the orphanage, honing his own skills against the oldest of the kids and volunteers, or simply passing on his knowledge to the youngsters. It was a lifestyle and role he truly enjoyed and would have continued, but when Mitch was around 19-years-old, the orphanage relocated to a larger city and Mitch bid farewell to the kids he'd seen growing up, though he comforted himself with the knowledge that moving to a larger town made them all more likely to find permanent homes. With his afternoon schedule suddenly bare, Mitch kept up his frequent basketball games to keep his mind occupied, this time playing with other young adults rather than children. It was a transition he wasn't completely prepared for, with his opponents suddenly having skill sets on a whole other level, and so Mitch began to play harder and faster than he ever did, and sharpened his skills ever more on the streets. Before long Mitch was known as the best player on the streets, and when he attended college less than a year later he set his sights on the basketball team.

Mitch was a power house among even them, and though he wasn't the ace of the team, he was considered by many to be the second best. With a natural agility and fast reflexes, Mitch was a whirlwind on the court, often catching well-timed passes and leading his team to victory with his shots and dunks. His optimistic and friendly personality was an asset as well, as Mitch rarely butted heads with any of his teammates, and his tendency to crack jokes and ease any growing tensions strengthened the bond between him and his teammates.

As his college career grew closer to ending, Mitch started putting more thought to his future and potential career paths, and after a long debate with himself he started to see a future as a professional athlete within reach for him, and at 21-years-old, Mitch decided to submit his name into the FBA draft. Though supportive of his decision, his parents reminded him frequently that they both had businesses that he could fall back on should his attempts to join the FBA fail, but even if he doesn't make it in to the big leagues Mitch has become a young male who wants to make his own way through the world, whether that way takes him down the road of professional basketball or not.
