SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Spring football is canceled but that doesn’t stop the work for the University of Utah football team including quarterback Jake Bentley.
“QB Country” on Twitter posted a video of the South Carolina graduate transfer quarterback getting some work in.
Bentley wasn’t doing your normal throwing drills. He was working on sequencing along with hip and shoulder separation.
Utah was in the middle of a quarterback competition in spring football when it was canceled due to the coronavirus or COVID-19.

I Love it when a high level thrower takes the time to work on the little things.
This is how you continue to grow.

Now that spring ball won’t happen, Bentley will have to work on his game on his own time as he tries to earn the starting quarterback job, competing against Texas transfer Cameron Rising.

How Do I Prevent It?
The CDC has some simple recommendations, most of which are the same for preventing other respiratory illnesses or the flu:
- Avoid close contact with people who may be sick
- Avoid touching your face
- Stay home when you are sick
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Always wash your hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
The CDC does not recommend wearing a face mask respirator to protect yourself from coronavirus unless a healthcare professional recommends it.
