WVU's Clint Trickett looks to pass in a game Oct. 19, 2013 against Texas Tech in Morgantown, W.Va.
From local dispatches
West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen named redshirt senior Clint Trickett his starting quarterback Tuesday, two months before the season opener against Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.
A year ago, Holgorsen left the quarterback competition open, and things could hardly have gone more poorly. Paul Millard and Ford Childress each got two unremarkable starts before Trickett, a transfer from Florida State, finally took the reins. West Virginia finished 4-8 and missed out on a bowl game for the first time since 2001.
Trickett, who completed 123 of 233 passes for 1,605 yards and seven touchdowns last season, missed spring practices after offseason shoulder surgery.
