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.
Norman White enters his senior season on the heels of a 2010 season where he had 69 catches for 886 and 11 touchdowns, a campaign that ranks as one of the most prolific by a wide receiver in Villanova history. A co-captain and two year starter, White will be counted on to be a security blanket for a young quarterback this season, whoever that may be. By all accounts, he's also a tremendous run blocker for a receiver. Here's hoping he's healthy and ready to go for the season opener.
