WVU Scouts Terps On All Sides Of The Ball

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia's goal was 2-0 after two games. It stands to reason the goal after the first three would be yet another victory on the docket. Here, quarterback Skyler Howard, along with a pair of defensive backs and last week's special teams hero dissect Maryland, and flash forward to their expectations for the game.

Howard kicks off this series, speaking on what film review of the initial two games has taught him, his desired improvements against the first Power Five foe of the season, the size and strength along the Maryland front seven and the Terrapins' pass rushing ability. Howard also discusses his individual play and the communication progression between him and head coach Dana Holgorsen and him and the offense.

Defensive leader Terrell Chestnut details the lackluster play in the secondary and other portions of West Virginia's defense in the win over Liberty, his thoughts on tape review, how he believes the defense can be successful against a steady diet of the run this weekend and how to better defend pocket passer Caleb Rowe.

K.J. Dillon flips the script and compares Maryland's receivers with the ones he faces daily in practice in Jovon Durante and Shelton Gibson, speaks to the Terps' physical play and discusses the importance of maintaining a solid start, which the Mountaineers did not do at times in their last contest against Liberty.

And finally, a still somewhat shy Nick Meadows gives insights as to this thought process while filling in for John DePalma as the long snapper to weeks ago while DePalma battled back issues. Meadows noted that he started snapping early in his Pop Warner career, and he takes us through some of the mechanics and total body coordination and skillsets required to execute the snap, then be able to handle oncoming blockers.
