Brandyn Harvey celebrating a national championship
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- 2005-2009
A big, talented wide receiver from San Diego who flashed early on in his career, but really came on in his senior season. Starting with a huge game against Temple in week one, Brandyn Harvey wound up having one of the finer seasons by a wide receiver in Villanova history in 2009. While he didn't put up Brian Finneran like numbers, he did something that even Matt Szczur was never able to do, lead Villanova in receiving yards in a season. Was also a tremendous blocker.
After his career at Villanova, Harvey spent time in camp with multiple NFL teams including the Falcons and Cardinals.
