Villanova Football Season Countdown: 35 is For Billy Joe


Fullback: 1960-1962

Villanova's last ever bowl win was the 1961 Sun Bowl, a game in which Billy Joe was the MVP. Although Joe gained less than 600 yards on the ground during his career on the Main Line, he remains one of Villanova's all time great players because of his accomplishments as a professional (1963 AFL Rookie of The Year, 1965 AFL All Star) while playing with the Broncos, Bills, Dolphins, and Jets. On top of his accomplishment on the football field, Joe also ran track, and still holds the Villanova record for the shot put.

After his career as a player, Billy Joe became a coach, and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach in 2007.
