Villanova football season countdown: 12 is for Kirk Schulz

Kirk Schulz

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.   
Quarterback 1986-1989

A 6-3 190 pound four year starter, Kirk Schulz was the second quarterback in the Andy Talley era, the first quarterback to lead Villanova onto the field against exclusively 1-AA competition, and the first quarterback to start a playoff game.

Schulz currently sits at second all-time in career passing yards at Villanova with 9,676, third all time in touchdowns with 74, and third in career total offense with 9,261 yards.  Schulz also holds the single season and career interception marks with his 22 picks in 1989 and the 73 he threw in his career.  At the time of his graduation, he held just about every conceivable passing record in school history (then Chris Boden came along and broke just about all of them).

Career Stats:
793 Completions
1330 Passing Attempts
9,676 Passing Yards
74 Touchdowns
73 Interceptions

2013 player wearing this number: Chris Polony
