Heading into the final three days of preseason camp, West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen believes he is starting to get closer to solidifying his depth chart heading into the season opener.
When Dana Holgorsen said in a press conference earlier in camp that last season’s West Virginia football team lacked leadership, everyone instantly started searching for where the source of those problems could be.
