West Virginia is taking on Alabama in the 2014 season opener, so getting a handle on as much as it can now would be advisable for planning for what should be quite the challenge. On Tuesday West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen named Clint Trickett the starting quarterback for the Mountaineers.
“Clint is 100 percent healthy and is ready to play.” Holgorsen said in a statement released on the school’s team website. “He worked hard last season and showed a lot of ability and leadership and deserves the chance to lead the team as a senior. He will be our starter.”
West Virginia and Alabama will play in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta on August 30.
