Villanova football season countdown: 40 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.     

Frank Boal

Runningback: 1966-1968

Finished his career with 1,005 career rushing yards, and still holds the school record for most career punt return yardage with 649. In his three year career, Frank Boal led Villanova in rushing once, and scoring twice.

After his playing career was over, he was a sportscaster in Kansas City. Boal was inducted to the Villanova Hall of Fame in 2007.

2014 player wearing this number: Fred O'Connor
