Flames Basketball Boot Camp Video Feature
Despite a grueling 2012-13 regular season, the Liberty men's basketball team came together when it counted the most, stringing together four straight wins in March to capture the 2013 Big South Championship.
While many people may point to a specific game earlier in the year as a turning point, the Flames will tell you the foundation is built before the season is even underway.
Each year, before official practices start, head coach Dale Layer puts his players through basketball boot camp, an intense week of strength, conditioning and team building exercises.
Last month, the Liberty Flames Sports Network stopped by the men's basketball practice facility to see what boot camp was all about. The following LFSN video feature includes exclusive footage from the training sessions, along with interviews from Layer and players Davon Marshall, Joe Retic, Joel Vander Pol and John Caleb Sanders.
The Flames open the 2013-14 season on Nov. 8, playing host to Randolph College inside the Vines Center. Game time is slated for 8 p.m.
