Villanova Football season countdown: 81 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.    

Earnest Pettway

Tight End: 2011-Present

A native of Long Beach, California, and a product of Long Beach Polytechnic High School, rising junior Earnest Pettway has been Villanova's starting tight end since the middle of his freshman year, the disastrous 2011 season. Since then, Pettway has caught 34 balls for 297 yards and scored four touchdowns. Since I think that Villanova will be throwing the ball more often this season, I expect Pettway to be a bigger part of the offense.
