Bizzarro Uncertain Of Future
Erie (Pa.) McDowell wide receiver Mike Bizzarro has been informed by Akron athletic director Tom Wistrcill that he is in good standing with Akron. "The athletic director called me and told me my offer still stands," Bizzarro said. "I just want to see what happens. I wanted to be coached by J.D. Brookhart and now he is gone. I have no idea who the new coach is going to be. I have no idea what type of system the new coach will run and how I would fit in that system. "The athletic director just said I'm sure you heard what happened," Bizzarro said. "He said they are trying to find a new staff immediately, but he did not know how long that would be." Bizzarro Has been doing a lot of work off the field as well to make sure he was in good standing. "I'm kind of confused by all this," Bizzarro explained. "I figured everything was good. I was working on my grades like they asked me to. This last quarter I had the highest GPA I have ever had. I was excited, they (Akron) was excited. "I haven't talked to the Akron coaches at all," Bizzarro said. "I committed to Coach Brookhart and his staff and what they were about, so now I need to see what is out there and get this all figured out. "I'm going to start sending out my senior film in the next day or two," Bizzarro stated. "We'll see what happens with that. I haven' really checked out any other schools. I have gone to four Akron home games, so I'm kind of behind the eight ball." As a senior, Bizzarro caught nine passes for 358 yards and five touchdowns. He averaged 39.8 yards per catch. He earned 1st Team All-WPIAL South honors.
