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.
Another case of a player who switched numbers from a less desirable one to a preferable one after if freed up. After having 31.5 tackles in the previous season, Haggerty was limited by injury to only two games and four tackles.
On the current roster, freshman linebacker Gregg Kobelski wears 59.
