Apon and Warner Garner Strength and Conditioning All-America Honors
Graduated seniors Brandon Apon (football) and Megan Warner (women's soccer) were recently named Hammer Strength All-Americans, an award sponsored by the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCC).
Apon and Warner were among the 17 student-athletes named to the All-America listing and Liberty was the only school to have two representatives on the list. This is the second year the CSCC has sponsored an All-America team in association with Hammer Strength.
During their senior seasons, both Apon and Warner helped their teams capture Big South championships.
Apon was a part of Liberty's football program that finished the season with an 8-4 record and shared the conference title with Coastal Carolina.The tight end capped off his playing career by earning All-Big South and VaSID all-state honors after ranking second on the team with four touchdown receptions. The Woodstock, Ga., native finished his career as the Big South all-time career leader in touchdown receptions by a tight end (eight) and served as one of Liberty's team captains.
Warner's senior season saw her score three goals and assist on another with two of her three goals being game-winning shots. She started 12 games for the Lady Flames in 2013 and finished her career with 26 career starts, five goals and four assists.
The Uniontown, Ohio, native, was a part of the Lady Flames women's soccer team that posted a school-record 16-6-1 record and an 8-2-1 mark in Big South play. Liberty upset No. 1 seed Radford in the title game of the Big South Women's Soccer Championship, 5-0, earning the program its fourth conference title and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.
