Good Recovery

West Virginia offensive lineman Donny Barclay made a rapid recovery from a broken leg in the spring game, and was thus able to participate in the opening practices of fall camp.

Barclay's hopes for a productive summer appeared to be stunted when he wen down with a broken fibula during West Virginia's Gold-Blue game, but the pleasant Pennsylvania native made the best of the bad situation.

After playing in all 13 games as a freshman, Barclay was poised to be a leader on the offensive line during its summer workouts, and he didn't let the injury stop him. By employing a variety of workouts methods, he was able to keep himself in reasonable shape and rehabilitate the leg as it healed. Thus, when West Virginia took the field this week, Barclay was at his projected first string left tackle spot.

Listen as Barclay describes his summer work and discusses the keys to the offensive line's success this year.
