Villanova football season countdown: 69 (nice) 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.
 
Offensive Line: 2001-2004

Literally the only person to be issued this number in the recent history of Villanova football until this year. Berggren was a reserve offensive lineman for four years, and after his graduation he returned to the school to help coach the offensive line from 2005 to 2007.

It turns out that Villanova doesn't like issuing 69, but they did this year for freshman long snapper Collin Linden.
