Liberty Bowl Drills - Part I

As head coach Dana Holgorsen says, all three sides of the ball were prevalent in Friday's practice session. Here's a look at some of the drills, and the aspects of the offense, defense or special teams involved.

Working together one last time at the collegiate level as player-coach, Clint Trickett and Shannon Dawson oversee the quarterback drills and correct basic areas like footwork, mechanics, drop distance and arm level. Dawson will take the same offensive coordinator job at Kentucky when the game is over; Trickett will attempt to secure a graduate assistantship.

Here, West Virginia's receivers go through a ball-security drill and work on securing the catch prior to upfield movement. This ideal encompasses much of what West Virginia tried to do during the media viewing session on Friday - namely ball security, a basic approach and trying to make gains sans getting players hurt via full go or contact.

And, finally, WVU's special teams and safeties work drills involving ball security and kickoff coverage and return. Turnovers could prove paramount against the Aggies, and it's an area in which West Virginia has struggled this season.
