We continue our countdown to kickoff series to West Virginia’s season opener against Alabama with No. 74, Joe Madsen.
Madsen started 50 of a possible 51 games at center during his West Virginia career from 2009 through 2012. He was also named to the All-Big East Freshman Team in 2009, an All-Big East First Team selection by Phil Steele in 2010, both an All-Big East First and Second Team selection by multiple sources in 2011 and an All-Big 12 Second Team selection in 2012.
While competing in three bowl games, Madsen’s only victory came in West Virginia’s blowout-win over the Clemson Tigers in the 2012 Orange Bowl, 70-33.
Madsen is currently an offensive lineman for the Arena Football League’s LA KISS, which is owned by Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
