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.a Also, it's a ton of work to get pictures of all the players, so it may be incomplete. Oh well.
Defensive Tackle: 2008-2011
A second generation Villanova football player, Joe Makoid saw fairly limited action his first three years on the Main Line, but wound up seeing substantial playing time in his 2011 senior season.
