QB, Offensive Line Detail WVU Progression

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - There are widely varying levels of communication in each major collegiate offense, and perhaps none more imperative than that between Dana Holgorsen and Skyler Howard and Howard and center Tyler Orlosky. Here, the two players, along with guard Adam Pankey dissect that arena and break down its operations within West Virginia's offense.

First, Howard details his individual progression, and his emphasis on improvements over the summer. He then discusses the relationship between himself and Holgorsen, and the on-field communication between the quarterback position and his center in Orlosky. Howard also notes his relationship with the receivers, and the initial forays into early portions of fall camp.

Orlosky, below, also delves into those details, as well as speaking to the play of Pankey, newly minted in the spring at left guard after playing tackle on the same side last season. Orlosky also notes the communication differences between playing with former quarterback Clint Trickett and Howard, and how their individual styles affect blocking schemes and particulars of play selection.

Finally, Pankey discusses his move to guard, how that better fits his mentality and physical abilities as an offensive lineman and his communication within the blocking scheme calls with Orlosky. Pankey also notes some of the differences in facing a defensive line under new position coach Bruce Tall.
