Dana Holgorsen Needs a Third Quarterback, Apply Within

West Virginia's depth chart at quarterback looks like this at present:

#1 Geno Smith

#2 Paul Millard

#3 YOU?

Recently, head coach Dana Holgorsen said that he's never had a quarterback lost to injury in 20 years of coaching. When you tempt fate like that with only two QBs on the roster, you need a backup plan.

Holgorsen likes to have five quarterbacks available in camp. So how do you remedy the dearth of quarterbacks without forcing other guys to leave their current position to start chucking the ball around? Email the student body to tell them they are welcome to try to walk-on to the team.

If you are a West Virginia student interested in throwing approximately a ton of passes per practice (Holgorsen's practices require 1,000 throws or more), here's what you'll need to try out:

1: Workout gear (that's just sensible)

2: Proof of insurance

3: Completed Physical

4: Proof of Registration as a WVU student (full time students only)

5: Completed compliance form

6: Completed Walk-on form

Registration will take place on August 22 from 6:15-6:45 p.m. at the Milan Puskar Center followed by a workout at Milan Puskar Stadium from 7-8 p.m.

We're encouraging readers who are West Virginia students (that means you can't tryout, Mengus) to tryout and tell us what happened (email us at bigeastcoastbias at gmail dot com). If you make the team as a walk-on quarterback, we'll give you a forum here to tell everyone what it's like.
