West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen has officially announced that Clint Trickett will be the Mountaineers’ starting quarterback for the 2014 season.
In a statement on the team’s website, Holgorsen said, “Clint is 100 percent healthy and is ready to play. 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.”
In eight games of action in 2013, Trickett completed 123 of of 233 passes for 1,605 yards and seven touchdowns. Though the Mountaineers went just 2-5 in his seven starts, the former Florida State transfer did lead West Virginia to an impressive 30-21 upset of No. 17 Oklahoma State in Morgantown.
