Leading up to the opening game of the Villanova football season on August 31 against Boston College, Fact on Villanova Sports will be counting down the days between now and the beginning of the football season using the jersey numbers of Villanova football players of the past. For as many numbers as possible, effort will be taken to introduce players from the current team, with the exception of "important" players from the past. Also, it's a ton of work to get pictures of all the players, so it may be incomplete. Oh well.
Defensive Line: 2010-Present
After injuries on the defensive line forced him into action as a true freshman, Antoine Lewis stepped up and started at defensive end, and played at a very high level, especially in the running game as Villanova advanced all the way to the national semifinal, where they lost to Eastern Washington. More recently, Lewis has switched to defensive tackle, providing Villanova with penetrating ability that they have not had at the position since the graduation of Darrell Adams after the 2005 season.
Lewis is a captain for the 2013 season.
