Continuing in its coverage of Liberty's annual spring practice, FSN reporter Alan York visited today with defensive back Kevin Fogg and defensive backs coach Marshall Roberts.

Fogg was given a second chance at a full senior season when the NCAA approved his medical hardship waiver during the offseason. Fogg suffered a season-ending injury four games into the 2012 season during a light practice session leading up to Liberty's Big South opener against Gardner-Webb.

Fogg had a breakout year in 2011, leading the country in kickoff return yards (33.5 yards per return) and kickoff returns for a touchdown (3). For his special teams efforts, he was named a first-team All-American by the Sports Network, College Sporting News and the Walter Camp Foundation.

The Raleigh, N.C., native also excelled defensively in 2011, finishing the year with a career-high 45 tackles (33 solo, 12 assisted). He tied for the team lead and ranked third in the Big South with three interceptions.

Through four games in 2012, Fogg had recorded 18 tackles (13 solo, five assisted), two pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He continued to show his special teams excellence by returning a punt 77 yards for a touchdown during Liberty's home opener against No. 24 Norfolk State.

On the practice field today, Liberty began its final week of spring workouts and held its last full practice session this afternoon.

Following the team's annual spring game on Saturday, head coach Turner Gill ran a traditional practice session today from 4:20 to 6:30 p.m. on the turf at Williams Stadium. Thursday's workout will have a strong special teams focus and will be the team's final practice of the spring.
