More WVU Player Drills From Day One

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Another look at the opening day of fall drills for West Virginia as it readies for its fourth season of Big 12 play.

We start with a secondary ball skills drill, in which players work on breaking on the pass, and finding the trajectory after getting past an upright dummy. There were a handful of miscues during the session, leading position coach Brian Mitchell to reset the drill at one point.

Next, Josh Lambert is perfect on a series of contested field goals, with one bouncing in after hitting off the upright. Notice the quick elevation of the kicks, along with the pressure from the defensive side and protection of Lambert. Also listen in as punter Nick O'Toole, also the first team holder, gives direction and calls.

And, perhaps more importantly in this camp, the punt and punt return work. O'Toole seemed to get good hang time and distance on the majority of his kicks, with most of them being fielded cleanly by K.J. Dillon (9) and Vernon Davis (81). As you'll note, however, there was a mishandle by freshman wideout Gary Jennings.
