WVU Football Fatorma Mulbah Front

West Virginia defensive lineman Fatorma Mulbah breaks through the line to pressure a running play

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- The focus on fundamental development has been evident in the early days of West Virginia's 2023 fall football practices, and that has involved more than just base work on alignment and positioning. Assembling those items, and stringing them together to produce a solid rep from start to finish, is the next step in the process that the coaches are hoping results in more wins this season.

Those are evident in these practice reps from the first days of fall drills. In the first two clips, Mountaineer defenders drop into coverage, follow ball movement and reach a rally point, then finish off with an interception and a return. Footwork, alignment and drop techniques are all part of this drill.
