Mitch Donahue, a hailing from Billings, Mont., is one of the greatest defensive ends in Wyoming history. Donahue was the 1989 and 1990 Western Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year. He earned First Team All-America honors from the Football Writer's Association, The Sporting News and the National Football League Draft Report. As a senior, he finished fourth in the prestigious Outland Trophy Award balloting. Also during his senior year he earned WAC Defensive Player of the Week twice while leading the nation in sacks with 21. He was a four-time All-WAC selection and owns the UW record for most career sacks with 48. Donahue was drafted in the 4th round of the 1991 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. He played for both the 49ers and the Denver Broncos during his professional career.
