John Bizet's commitment to Alderson-Broaddus College was a decision he knew would shape more than just his college career, but the foundation for his next 40 years.

The Bentworth senior's determination to play football at the collegiate level led to his decision to join NCSA Athletic Recruiting, a Chicago-based exclusive recruiting network that provides student athletes with the opportunity and technology to be proactive in their recruiting process.

Not only did Bizet (6-5, 320) have the tools he needed for the recruiting process, NCSA also educated him on the steps he needed to take to achieve his goal.

The offensive tackle picked Alderson-Broaddus College over schools such as Robert Morris, Marietta, Gannon, Bethany and Westminster.

“I really liked the campus and it is a good Division-II school,” Bizet said. “I think it's a good place for me.”

Bizet demonstrated the true meaning of “student-athlete” by working hard for a 3.0 GPA while also standing out on the gridiron. A two-year starter for the Bearcats, Bizet plans to pursue a degree at the private, liberal arts college in Philippi, W. Va.

His self-motivation and trust in the recruiting process has rewarded him with the opportunity to play football as an Alderson-Broaddus Battler and earn a meaningful degree that will help him succeed in the future.

Bizet also praised the help he received from NCSA.

“I was looking around the Internet for help with colleges and I found them,” he said of the service. “I was happy with the help they gave me.”

Bizet is the son of Joe and Jeannette Bizet of Scenery Hill.
