MORGANTOWN, WV — On August 11, the crack of pads filled the Steve Antoline Family Football Practice Field. Head coach Neal Brown and the WVU football team were hard at work, running plays and simulating game time decisions. The pace quick. The runs much cleaner, just as Brown told the media he had hoped for yesterday. With the late summer sun beating down on them and music blasting from the speakers, the Mountaineers scrimmaged in full pads for the first time.
The second “thud” practice was suddenly underway and the pressure was on. One day closer to the season. QB1 Jarret Doege was primed and ready as the offense and defense lined up for some red zone reps. Garrett Greene got a few snaps as well, and his QB keeps looked short, but fluid. Of note, a myriad of run and pass plays were called by both Doege and Greene, while pretty routine run-throughs of scout defenses were at the line of scrimmage to meet them. Doege looked like “Mr. Electricity” today, taking advantage of his wideouts. The connections were solid and he looked relaxed at the helm.
