Video Feature: Spring Drills

In this new feature on, we take a look at some of the common drills conducted during football practices.

We often refer to different drills conducted during spring (and fall) football practices, but words and even still images go only so far in conveying the true nature and nuances of thes sessions. Thus, over the next few days, we'll present a video look at several common drills conducted as part of West Virginia's football practices.

The first installment is the "W" drill, in which a ball carrier, with three blockers in front, attempts to get upfield against three defenders. This drill, also known as "Oklahoma" or "board" drill, is a common way of getting intensity ratcheted up. It's one-on-one competition, with blockers and defenders battling for supremacy in a confined area.
