The West Virginia football team returned to the gridiron on the first day of fall camp Thursday evening. While there are certain questions including the obvious quarterback scenario, head coach Dana Holgorsen was satisfied with his team’s energy this early in the year.
Holgorsen addressed the media with his thoughts on guys’ conditioning, how players are performing at certain positions and how this team will rebuild from a tough season a year ago.
WVU’s third-year head coach didn’t give any indication on who will get the starting nod at quarterback, but he did say that redshirt junior and Florida State transfer Clint Trickett looked solid and wasn’t nervous in the slightest.
“He (Clint) is good; he’s seasoned,” Holgorsen said after the practice. “He doesn’t get nervous. You could tell he has some game experience. For a guy who had his very first practice, I think he did good.”
Trickett will be competing with redshirt freshman Ford Childress and junior Paul Millard for the job.

Who knows how the year will turn out, but West Virginia certainly has the talent to surprise a lot of people this season.
