High Point of UVa Fall Camp

HooNation.com takes a look at the highest point of fall camp for Virginia.

In the last two years Virginia football could not field one healthy offensive line during camp, and during the season those injuries forced former offensive line coach Scott Wachenheim to play a game of musical chairs. This camp it was different. Not only were the Cavaliers able to field one full offensive line, but two. 

Apart from Sadiq Olanrewaju, who did not participate in camp, everyone else lined up for the 'Hoos. This depth at the offensive line has UVa head coach Mike London excited by the opportunities that could lie ahead for the team, especially as the team tries to establish a power running offense. 

This competition has also led to competition at every position. The right tackle position is a great example. Eric Smith and Jake Fieler competed for that position, with Smith winning back his position after losing it in the spring. Smith admitted that he became complacent after starting two seasons, but when UVa assistant and offensive line coach Dave Borbely put him with the second team, it humbled him and he fought for his position back by staying after practice and going the extra mile. 

Thus the offensive line depth is the high point of UVa's fall camp.
