While Matt Ioannidis' Temple Football bio says he's interested in becoming a professional trainer at some point in his life, those dreams are going to have to be put on hold for a while, with him now being a member of the Washington Redskins.
Ioannidis was the picture of health with the Owls (a trait that should serve him very well with Washington), having played in every single game for Temple since he made his collegiate debut against then-No. 19 Rutgers on Oct. 20, 2012.
That year, Ioannidis was one of 14 true freshmen to see some sort of game action.
Ioannidis didn't spin his wheels when he took the field, either. This will illustrate that point: In his junior season, Ioannidis started the season with jersey No. 95. He changed that to jersey No. 9, when he was awarded one of the single-digit jerseys that were given to the toughest guys on the team.
Washington has talent up front on the defensive line with names like Chris Baker, Kedric Golston, Ricky Jean-Francois, Stephen Paea and Trent Murphy associated with it. They'll no doubt welcome another talent like Ioannidis with open arms, and help him elevate his game to even higher heights.
