Villanova football season countdown: 58 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. 

Marlon Johnson

Defensive End: 2008-2012

A defensive end who improved every season that he started, Marlon Johnson started every game on the 2009 championship team only to get hurt in the first game of 2010. Unfortunately, he only got three seasons of healthy eligibility as he had already redshirted.

On the current roster, freshman linebacker Jeff Steeb wears this number.
