Villanova Football Season Countdown: 14 is For Ross Ventrone
As the younger brother of former Villanova super stud and current Cleveland Browns safety Ray Ventrone, it is only natural that Ross Ventrone ended up on the Main Line. After playing at Pitt for two seasons as a walk-on and earning little playing time, Ventrone decided to head east to his brother's alma mater in 2007 where he was offered a scholarship and was able to garner immediate playing time. In his three years as a starter, he was one of the key cogs in a defense that ultimately led Villanova to its first ever national championship.
Although undersized, Ross Ventrone was a strong hitter, an instinctual cover man, and very good in run support.
