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.
After a freshman season where he had over 100 tackles, Dillon Lucas cooled off in his 2012 sophomore season after a torn labrum in his shoulder. In 2013, he redshirted because of an injury that kept him out the entire season. Dillon Lucas does have ability, and Villanova has openings in the linebacker corps. Expect him to see plenty of action.
