The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show spotlighting Liberty's football program, returns to the airwaves this evening at 7 p.m. The show is hosted weekly at Doc's Diner and features Flames Head Coach Turner Gill and a different member of his coaching staff each week.
New this year, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on the ESPNinVA network, which includes the following ESPN Radio stations in the Central Virginia area: 93.3 FM (Lynchburg), 106.3 FM (Danville), 1240 AM (Roanoke), 1320 AM (Lynchburg) and 1350 AM (Bedford).
The weekly show is hosted locally in Lynchburg on Liberty University's campus at Doc's Diner, and the restaurant is open to the student body and the general public. The show is broadcast live throughout the 50's-style diner and fans are encouraged to participate during the call-in segments.
Alan York, the radio "Voice of the Flames," hosts the call-in show, which features Liberty's second-year head football coach and will open this week with a segment with the Flames' running backs coach, Jamaal Fobbs.
Fobbs is in his second season at Liberty and has helped to develop two quality starting running backs during his time on Liberty Mountain.
Last year, Aldreakis Allen became the ninth player in program history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season (1,019 yards and 10 touchdowns). This year, Desmond Rice has stepped into the starting role after an injury to Allen and has rushed for 645 yards and nine touchdowns.
Through eight games in 2013, Liberty has rushed for 1,321 yards and 20 touchdowns, which ranks No. 16 in the country in total rushing touchdowns.
Following the opening segment with Fobbs, York will welcome in Gill for the remainder of the hour-long show. Gill will recap Liberty's 24-0 shutout victory over Gardner-Webb and preview Liberty's upcoming contest against VMI, which begins a three-game homestand for the Flames.
After the first few segments with Gill, York will open up the phone lines and field questions from the radio listening audience or those seated inside Doc's Diner. Fans unable to make it out to Doc's Diner each Monday night may call in at (877) 401-9041 to participate in the weekly show.
Those not able to participate in the call-in portion of the show can also email their questions for Gill to LFSN@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.
Flames Nation fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to any of the ESPNinVA network of stations in the Central Virginia area. The show will also air live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
