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.
After seeing him start and play well at Maryland in 2007, I was convinced that Fort Lauderdale, Florida native Antwon Young was going to be a stud three year starter for Villanova. A few weeks later against William & Mary, everything was thrown out the window. In that game, Young suffered an ACL tear, Chris Whitney came into the game, and the rest is history. Young was still able to make an impact, including replacing an ineffective Whitney in a game against Penn in 2009, and a ridiculous 82 yard touchdown run against Towson in that same year.
