Villanova football season countdown: 60 is for...


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. Also, it's a ton of work to get pictures of all the players, so it may be incomplete. Oh well.
 
Ross Hall
Center: 2011-Present
The injury to two year starting center Dan Shirey prior to the 2012 season should have been a devastating blow to the Villanova offensive line, as most teams cannot absorb the losses of one of the better linemen in the history of the school. Ross Hall's emergence as a redshirt freshman made Shirey's absence less of an issue, and when Shirey returned in 2013, the two paired to be a formidable center/guard combination. Ross Hall will return as the starter at center in 2014. He will also be wearing number 73 for the second consecutive season.
