Villanova football season countdown: 22 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.
Running Back: 2006-2010
Equally adept at running, receiving, and special teams made Angelo Babbaro far more valuable than his career ending stat-line would suggest. Originally a backup to Matt Dicken and Aaron Ball respectively, he earned his way onto the field more and more as his career wound on, eventually garnering a virtual 50/50 split between himself and Ball by his senior year.
