Villanova football season countdown: 53 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.    
Jamil Butler

Defensive End: 2000-2004

A three year starter and four year contributor on the dominant Villanova 4-2-5 defenses of the early 2000s, Norristown native Jamil Butler finished his career on the Main Line with 23.5 sacks, one of the highest totals in school history. Also tallied 229 tackles and 40 tackles for loss for his career, tremendous numbers for a defensive lineman.
