Iona Prep graduate Darius Wilson and the William and Mary football begin a tough three-game stretch on Saturday when it plays at Villanova in a Colonial Athletic Association game.
Villanova is ranked fourth in the NCAA Division Football Subdivision poll. Cardinal Hayes High School graduate Justin Covington, a graduate student and running back, has rushed for 469 yards and three touchdowns on 77 carries for the Wildcats, who are 6-1 overall after a 44-0 win over Rhode Island last weekend.
Wilson, a freshman quarterback, has completed 70 of 110 passes for 848 yards and five touchdowns and rushed for 297 yards and three touchdowns on 45 carries. In last week’s 40-14 win over Towson, he was 7 for 12 for 164 yards and one touchdown and added six carries for 48 yards on the ground.
William and Mary (5-2 overall, 3-1 CAA) plays at Delaware next weekend before hosting No. 5 James Madison on Nov. 13.
