Leading up to the opening game of the Villanova football season TOMORROW(!) 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.
Running back: 2010-Present
A junior running back from Franklinville, New Jersey, Austin Medley is a bigger threat to break off a big run than his companion, Kevin Monangai, but the problem is that Medley has shown that he isn't as durable as Monangai when he is given a lot of carries. Had 402 yards on 74 carries last season with one touchdown.
I would expect that he gets closer to 120 carries this season if healthy, because Monangai took quite the pounding last season, carrying the ball 212 times.
