Football Opens Preseason Training Camp on Thursday
Liberty will officially begin preparation for the 2014 football season on Thursday when the Flames hold their first preseason training camp practice, starting at 9:15 a.m.
Liberty's football players are returning to campus today and third-year head coach Turner Gill will hold his first team meeting of the season tonight inside the Williams Football Operations Center.
In keeping with the NCAA's acclimation period policies, the Flames will hold two practice sessions in just helmets and two more in half pads before donning a full set of gear for Monday afternoon practice.
All of Liberty's preseason training camp practices are open to the public and media. Besides the two off-campus workouts, the remainder of Liberty's preseason training camp practices will take place in Williams Stadium and the two practice fields adjacent to the Williams Football Operations Center.
Video and still photography will be allowed only during the first 15 minutes of each of Liberty's daily workout sessions. No photography of any kind will be allowed following the stretching period of the team's daily practices.
Media outlets planning on attending any training camp practices should contact the Athletics Communications office at least 24 hours in advance with interview requests and which practices they plan to attend.
