Lineman Builds Fine Resume at Geneva


Wunderley, Ken, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


When Brett Alberti graduated from Blackhawk High School, he chose Duquesne University with the goal of attaining an engineering degree.

He also decided that playing football and pursuing an engineering degree would not be possible because both are very time consuming.

After one year at Duquesne, this Beaver County resident made two changes. He decided to move closer to his West Mayfield home to attend Geneva College and resume his football career.

"Beaver Falls is a great place for football, both high school and college," said Alberti, who didn't fully understand that until his year at Duquesne, and a year away from football.

Alberti is one of 40-plus players on Geneva's roster who are majoring in engineering.

"Engineers are really committed to what they do," Alberti said. "It's great to be around that atmosphere, because it pushes you to spend your time wisely. You have to be committed to be successful in both engineering and football."

Geneva coach Geno DeMarco, in his 22nd year leading the Golden Tornadoes program, agrees that having a strong engineering school has significantly helped his football program, which now competes in the Presidents' Athletic Conference.

"During our NAIA days, we competed against [former coach] Gene Nicholson at Westminster, and we talked about the future of small college football. He predicted that we would all eventually be playing in [NCAA] Division III. …
