This is head coach Turner Gill's second season overseeing the team.

     Liberty University opens the football season on August 29th at Kent State.  Wednesday the Flames got to work in their first practice leading up to the opener.
     Eighteen starters return from last year's team that won at least a share of the Big South title for the 5th time in 6 years.
      Among them is quarterback Josh Woodrum from Cave Spring High School here in Roanoke.
        Last year at this time, Woodrum was in the midst of a battle for the starting job, and didn't win the job until the fourth week of the season.  But now he's found his comfort zone in a leadership role.
