Bryan Kisabeth




Dearborn (MI) Divine Child


My choice for sleeper. If he ends up in the MAC, 3 years from now people will wonder why he is not in the Big Ten. He has height, hands, speed. He just needs time to fill out a bit, but has the frame to do it. Update: Kisabeth caught 7 for 177 and 2 TD's in upset of DePorres. Buffalo getting a steal.

 Bryan is the son of Ken & Joan (Strait) Kisabeth and grandson of Foster & Bertha (Dobozy) Kisabeth. He will graduate from Divine Child High School with a 3.0 GPA and hopes to study Business at Buffalo. The official name of the school is New York State University at Buffalo. Buffalo is a division 1 football school and is a member of the Mid-American Conference featuring schools as Central, Western & Eastern Michigan, powerhouse Marshall and currently 16th ranked Northern Illinois.
