BGN Video: Shorts and Millard

After opening preseason camp Thursday, West Virginia football players met with the media for the first time Friday afternoon.

Sophomore Daikiel Shorts emerged on the scene last year during his first season in Morgantown, leading West Virginia with 45 catches to go with 495 yards and two scores.

Friday, Shorts talked about the depth and promise that the Mountaineer receivers have heading into this season and the relationships they have developed with Clint Trickett since he was named WVU's starter at quarterback.

With Trickett named the starter, it appears that senior Paul Millard is in position to be West Virginia's backup this season.

In his first time speaking to the media since Trickett was named the starter, Millard talked about staying focused on getting his reps and continuing to improve - even though he will not be the starting quarterback heading into the regular season - and how he has improved during his four years since arriving at WVU.
