Leading up to the opening game of the Villanova football season on August 29 against Syracuse, 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 and present. 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.
Defensive End: 2012-Present
After redshirting his first season on the Main Line, Patrick McGown, a 6 foot 4 inch, 250 pound defensive end from Valencia, California became a back end of the defensive line rotation player for Villanova in 2013, playing in six games and collecting three tackles and one sack. In 2014, he should figure into a Villanova defensive line rotation that lost its most productive defensive lineman in Rakim Cox.
Only 14 weeks to go.
