Does it feel like your career at Pitt has gone by quickly?
Bisnowaty: Yeah, these past five years have flown by. It feels like just yesterday I was moving in for training camp before my freshman season. Now that I'm here as a starter and team captain, it feels great to see how things worked out for the best. I'm really excited for my last season with this team and we're going to try to win a lot of games.
Academically, what are you studying right now?
Bisnowaty: I graduated with my communication degree and I'm working on my master's degree in health and fitness. I'd like to be a high school teacher and coach football.
I had a lot of mentors--teachers and coaches--who I looked up to growing up. I'd like to have that kind of positive impact on others in future generations.
How have you changed during your time here?
Bisnowaty: The biggest change is my hair. It went from a buzz cut to being well past my shoulders now. Two great friends of mine, former Pitt teammates Matt Rotheram and Ray Vinopal, told me that if I wanted to have more swag then I needed to grow my hair out. So I went out and did it.
And finally, would you like to share with the world how to pronounce your last name?
Bisnowaty: It's BIZ-NO-VOT-TEE. The "w" actually makes a "v" sound.
