HERO Sports is going to count down each day by highlighting the best player in FCS football who wears the jersey number of the number of days to kickoff. You can find the running list of top players here.
*Note: Jersey numbers are from the 2017 season.
The first player to come to mind when Fordham football is mentioned is Chase Edmonds. The stud running back had rushing seasons of more than 1,600, 1,700 and 1,800 yards his first three seasons. Injuries in 2017 prevented him from breaking the all-time FCS rushing record, but he was still drafted in the fourth round by Arizona.
As most good running backs do, they give credit to their offensive line. And Lombard has been a key member up front for the Rams. He started five games in 2016 as a sophomore. Last season, Lombard started all 11 games.
He'll be a leader on that unit this season and provides good size at 6-foot-5, 295 pounds.
