Villanova Football Season Countdown: 24 is For Ducarmel Augustin

Running Back: 1997-2000

On any other Villanova team, Ducarmel "Duc" Augustin would have been without question the primary running threat on the roster. Unfortunately for Augustin, he came to Villanova in the same class as Brian Westbrook. When Westbrook missed the 1999 season because of a serious knee injury, Augustin was forced to be the feature back, and he made the most of it, with 136 carries for 680 yards and 12 touchdowns to go along with 25 catches for 267 yards and a touchdown. Even though he was relegated to mostly a receiving role as a senior, he was still the second leading rusher on the team and scored eight total touchdowns. Born in Montreal of Haitian descent, but raised in Florida, Augustin had a brief career in the CFL after he was finished at Villanova.

Career Stats:
237 Rushing Attempts
1,151 Rushing Yards
107 Receptions
1,206 Receiving Yards
26 Total Touchdowns
