Drill Sessions: WVU Football Fall Camp
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – While an important scrimmage, designed to help sort out the depth chart and early season participants, is the next big event for West Virginia’s 2019 football team, individual work is still at the heart of the improvement process for those Mountaineers hoping to make a push for inclusion on the travel squad and in the game plan. We take a look at more drills from a recent session inside Milan Puskar Stadium.
West Virginia linebackers work on attacking downhill, taking on blockers an then shedding them to get to a ball carrier. This, like many drills that Neal Brown and his assistants have implemented, emphasize multiple fundamentals in the same rep.
West Virginia safeties and linebackers combine footwork with a ball skills drill.
West Virginia defenders use a ball and pads to practice playing off blocks while also working to keep their steps choppy, which helps promote balance while sifting though traffic.
Building from individual units to full 11-on-11 work is a tried-and-true method for practice. In this clip, the offensive line works against the defensive front and linebackers, combining protection work, defensive calls and coverage options.
