The competition is made up of 14 different events and tests the athlete's physical strength, knowledge of the game, and academic performance.

Mizelle,  a native of Winter Haven, Fla., was not only a standout athlete, but also a standout student for the Falcons. While at Daytona State Mizelle  recorded a 4.0 overall GPA, earning him high honors upon graduation. His hard work, both on and off the field, helped to gain the attention of FAU head coach, John McCormack, thus leading him to a spot on the Owl roster for the 2013-14 season.
