On Sunday night, the Mountaineers football team held a clinic for women interested in learning more about the sport and how West Virginia operates on a day-to-day basis.
Offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson, defensive coordinator Joe DeForest and equipment manager Dan Nehlen went over various aspects of the program and how they approach the game of football before the participants split off into groups to run drills.
The WVU players led the drills, teaching the women on hand a bit about each position. Quarterbacks Paul Millard and Ford Childress ran a throwing drill with net targets while the defensive lineman tried coaxing their students into laying out to tackle a dummy in the end zone.
It really was a very fun event and an educational one, too. There may be some debate as to which side had more fun -- the women participating or the players and coaches who were teaching the skills.
Our own Jess McCadam took part in the clinic and we will have more from the first WVU Women's Football Academy on the next episode of The Dana Holgorsen Show, airing Sat., Aug. 25. For now, check out the video preview above.
