(In memoriam) Joe Villavisencio was a 3-year starter for JHS, graduating as a Top 10 graduate in 2008. His senior year he was 2nd Team All-State from both The Associated Press and the Texas Sports Writer's Association ; 1st team All-District as junior and senior at JHS; 1st Team Academic All-State as a senior and 1st team All-East Texas as a senior. Joe was one of the most highly recruited lineman in the state of Texas in 2007 . He attended Texas A&M where he was a 3 year letterman and majored in radiological health engineering. Joe tragically passed away on 12/22/2011 in a car accident. He was so highly respected by teammates and coaches alike. His head coach at Texas A&M was Mike Sherman who said, "His teammates, coaches and fellow students will remember him as someone who would do anything for anybody. I will always remember him as always offering me a smile whenever we talked and would always answer my questions with a simple, 'yes, coach' or 'no, coach'. He was one of the most respectful and high character players I have ever coached. It was an honor and privilege to have known him, and to have coached him. I will never forget him."
