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.
In 1997, Villanova quarterback Chris Boden had what is quite simply the greatest statistical season by a Villanova quarterback in the of the program. In that magical season, Boden threw for over 3,700 yards and a school record 42 touchdowns for a team that went undefeated in the regular season and wound up finishing 12-1 after a heartbreaking loss to Youngstown State.
Now, 13 years after graduating from the Main Line, Boden is a football coach at ASA College in New York.
