John’s Story

John Mizerak grew up in upstate New York and lived an ideal childhood in small town America as a first generation son of a Czechoslovakian immigrant (Samuel) who was living the American Dream.  John was a gifted artist and musician as a child, but decided early in life to ignore those gifts, thinking they weren’t of value for a man.  Instead, he turned to sports. Even though small in stature, John worked his way up the depth chart on the high school football team and ended up walking on and starting at the University of Buffalo (UB) in the early 1980’s.  This experience led John to live out a life with the identity of an overcomer and overachiever and it would cloud his focus for years to come.
