Villanova Football Rolls Over Appalachian State Into FCS Semifinals

Matt Szczur has a contract with the Chicago Cubs, an invite to the Senior Bowl, and he’s got his Viilanova Wildcats in the semifinals of the FCS playoffs. When it’s all said and done he may have himself two national titles and a choice between the NFL and MLB.

Just to take a look at what he did today. Villanova scored six TDs on the day, Szczur accounted for five of those. His first was a two yard run near the goal line, then he threw a 54 yard TD pass to Norman White, caught a 30 yard TD of his own, ran for another from 24 yards out, and capped off his day with an impressive goal line run where he was stopped at least a yard and a half shy of the goal line, but stretched out his arm to just put the nose of the ball across on the line for his fifth TD of the day.

The only Wildcat TD Szczur was not a part of was QB Chris Whitney’s 5 yard TD run, which was Villanova’s final score of the afternoon. It was a dominating day for Villanova football and specifically a dominating day for one of the best players in the school’s history, Matt Szczur.
