QBs share WVU spring game spotlight

Apr. 20, 2013 @ 06:08 PM

MORGANTOWN  — After 15 practices and a spring game, the West Virginia football quarterback situation appears even, just as head coach Dana Holgorsen has called it all off-season.

Heading into his third spring, Holgorsen has his first quarterback battle since taking over, and the first such controversy for the Mountaineers since 2005.

In Saturday’s spring game, Paul Millard was 16 of 27 for 185 yards and three touchdowns. Ford Childress was 14 of 21 for 169 yards and one touchdown.

They’re fighting to replace Geno Smith, who set WVU career passing yardage, completion, attempts, touchdown and total offense records.

Dustin Garrison, who rushed for 207 yards in an injury-plagued 2012, led all rushers with 51 yards on seven carries.

Jordan Thompson had six catches for 123 yards and 3 TDs.
