Villanova Football Season Countdown: 11 is For Tom Colombo

Quarterback- 1989-1992

At 5'7 inches tall, Tom Colombo may have been the shortest quarterback in Villanova history, but he was also one of the best quarterbacks in school history.  A former walk-on, and nephew of heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano (who himself was diminutive,) Colombo started for three seasons at Villanova and is fifth on the school's passing list with over 5,000 career yards.  He was inducted into the Villanova Hall of Fame in 2010.
