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.  

Wide Receiver: 1994-1997

Brad Finneran had a very solid career, and on another Villanova team, he probably would have been a star, but he happened to have an identical twin brother who holds almost every single meaningful receiving record at the school. Brad's greatest contribution at Villanova was as a reliable possession receiver on the 1997 Atlantic-10 championship team for whom he had 47 catches for 727 yards and three touchdowns.

Also was a legendary intramural basketball player along with his brother.

Career Stats:
96 Receptions
1,252 Receiving Yards
6 Touchdowns

Current player wearing this number: Jerry Miles
