Villanova #1 in FSC

Villanova University won it's first FCS Championship on Friday 25 years after reinstating the program in 1984. For 25 years they have been led by Andy Talley who was chosen to resurrect the program that was once coach by "Four Horseman" Quarterback Harry Strudheler, produced future Hall of Famer Howie Long, and current NFL star Brian Westbrook.

A future star in the making is junior Matt Szczur. Szczur rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. He also caught four passes for 68 yards and returned two kickoffs for 43 yards. He is also expected to be drafted in Major League baseball draft.

Read this story by Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News. Too bad FCS wasn't BcS, the story should be front page news.
