We're having a two-fer today on "Get To Know Your Orange Man". Catch up on the rest of the team here.
Player: Joe Nassib
Hometown: Newton Square, PA
High School: The Haverford School
2010 Stats: Nada
2011 Projections: I really hope we don't get so many injuries where we have to start plugging in walk-ons on the field. Joe would probably be one of the first in though, and he looked like a pretty solid player this Spring, despite his size. He could definitely see some special teams time.
How'd He Get Here?: I'm guessing it has something to do with that last name of his (more on that later).
What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing. Neither service listed Joe.
Money Quote: "Silence is a source of great strength"...well that was actually Lao Tzu. Joe doesn't seem to be that talkative.
Links of Wonder: The year was 2010, and the Nassibening was upon us.
What Does Marrone Think?: Beats me...
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: As many of you have probably guessed, Joe is related to our wonderful quarterback Ryan; the two are cousins. Joe studies in the wonderful iSchool as an Information Management and Technology major.
Let's Get a Good Look at You: The Haverford School has a ton of highlights and slideshows from their championship 2009 season on their website (where they defeated Ryan Nassib's alma mater Malvern squad no less). Joe is #24.
