WVU Quarterbacks Show Off Arms in Offseason Throwing Videos
Even with the Spring football schedule cut short due to the COVID-19 outbreak, West Virginia’s quarterbacks have continued to work on their craft.
The Mountaineers will have five players in the quarterback room next season and almost all of them have been showing off their throwing arms on social media in recent weeks.
First up is junior Jarret Doege, who on Tuesday posted a video of him dropping the ball in a bucket from five, 10, 20, 30 and eventually 40 yards away.

Doege started WVU’s final three games after redshirting last season. He led the Mountaineers to two last-season wins while throwing for 818 yards and seven touchdowns with just three interceptions.
WVU’s other starter last season, senior Austin Kendall, posted a video last month showing off some footwork practice.

Kendall started the team’s first nine games, throwing for 1,989 yards and 12 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. Kendall and Doege are set to compete for WVUs\’s starting spot in 2020. Head coach Neal Brown said one of the biggest things the team will miss without Spring practices is the competition between the two.
Without a Spring Game, WVU fans will also miss their first look at incoming freshman Garrett Greene, who was an early enrollee in Brown’s 2020 recruiting class. Last month, Green posted a video to his Twitter working on his accuracy using a soccer net.

Greene passed for 1,155 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for 930 yards and 15 more touchdowns during his senior season down in Tallahassee in 2019.
Backup Trent Jackson has also been showing off on social media, making a couple of different throws to a receiver as he practices.

In two seasons, Jackson has never seen the field for the Mountaineers. He redshirted in 2018 and sat behind Kendall, Doege, Jack Allison and Trey Lowe in 2019. He passed for 2,174 yards as a senior at Kent Island High School.
The final member of WVU’s 2020 quarterback room, JUCO walk-on Matt Cavallaro, does not seem to be too active on social media and has not posted any work out videos like the others. As the starting quarterback at Lackawanna College, Cavallaro led the Falcons to a 10-1 record and an appearance in the NJCAA Football Championship. He threw for 1,754 yards and 23 touchdowns with only six interceptions.
