CAA Football

#2 RB Kevin Monangai

Junior, 5'8" 210 lbs.

Roseland, NJ

2012 Stats: Monangai rushed for 1386 yards on 266 attempts (5.2 avg) for 12 touchdowns and hauled in 11 catches for 94 yards and 2 touchdowns. He was named 1st Team All-CAA for his efforts and is a preseason All-CAA selection in 2013.

Depth Chart Position: Monangai is the starting running back.

How He Came To Villanova: Monangai was a star at Seton Hall Prep, being named 1st Team All-County and 2nd Team All-State while rushing for 2266 yards and 35 touchdowns during his senior season.

Expected Output In 2013: After an offseason spent working at DeFranco's in New Jersey, Monangai appears more driven than ever to take his game to the next level after his breakout season in 2012. Another 1,000 yard season almost feels like a given barring injury, but this year Monangai will be battling Terrance West for top running back in the conference, and he should be pushing for All-American honors in his junior season.
