West Virginia Football Coach Dana Holgorsen Looking to Entire Student Body for Quarterback Depth


August 10, 2011

Although head coach Dana Holgorsen has eluded to the fact that WVU will only carry two quarterbacks on gamedays, there is still a need for backup arms in practice. What better place to look than WVU's student body?

Holgorsen, via email, has reached out to the entire student body to help with the team's recent depth issues that have arisen due to injuries and transfers, according to Adam Kramer.

Holgorsen and the Mountaineers coaching staff will hold walk-on tryouts on Aug. 22 in search of some diamonds in the rough — or at least someone willing to take a beating from the first team.

West Virginia's starting quarterback Geno Smith should have a big year for the Mountaineers in Morgantown this season. Smith threw for 24 touchdowns and 2,763 yards last season.

Paul Millard is Smith's primary backup but, more importantly, he's the only other quarterback listed on the Mountaineers' roster.
