Prowling The Roster: #20 FS Joe Sarnese

We're counting down the days to Villanova's season opener by profiling every player on the roster.

#20 FS Joe Sarnese

Senior, 6'0" 200 lbs.

Ventnor, NJ

2012 Stats: Sarnese started all 12 games, recording 68 tackles (55 solo, 26 assists) and picked off 4 passes.

Depth Chart Position: Sarnese is slated to start at free safety and should be one of top performers on Villanova' defense.

How He Came To Villanova: Sarnese was 1st Team All-State, All-Conference and All-South Jersey at Holy Spirit where he starred at safety and wide receiver.

Expected Output In 2013: If the front six is doing their job, Sarnese's tackles may actually decrease, which wouldn't be a terrible thing. After being near the top of the team in interceptions in 2012, expect a repeat performance from the most experienced player in the secondary.
