Villanova football season countdown: 11 is for Craig James

  Craig James (background)
 
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.    
 
Cornerback: 2010-Present
Senior defensive back Craig James, a native of Mays Landing, New Jersey enters the 2013 season as one of the best and most seasoned players on the Villanova defense, having started 21 games over the last two seasons, and will be counted on to hold down one of the two cornerback positions, one of which was vacated by the graduation of four year starter Eric Loper. Last season, the Villanova pass defense was better than it had been in years, and it has the potential to be dominant again this year, with James as its anchor.
