Villanova football season countdown: 22 is for Jamal Abdur-Rahman

  Jamal Abdur-Rahman

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.  

Swiss Army Knife: 2011-Present

Missed the entire 2012 season for disciplinary reasons after being one of the few bright spots of the disappointing 2011 season. Was especially dominant in the loss to Delaware. During the 2011 season, Abdur-Rahman  carried 38 times for 293 yards (7.7 per carry) with two rushing touchdowns. He also caught 21 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown, and ran back 38 kickoffs for 910 yards (23.9 per return).

Will be one of a plethora of options for Villanova in the slot this season.
