Liberty will open up its 2017 spring football practice schedule, Tuesday, at Williams Stadium at 4 p.m. The afternoon workout will be the first of 15 practices for the Flames during the following five weeks.

The Flames' 15-practice spring workout schedule is highlighted by the Flames' Annual Spring Football game on April 15. Kickoff for the intrasquad scrimmage is set for 12 p.m. at Williams Stadium.

All Liberty University football practice sessions, outside of the annual spring game, are closed to the general public and the media, unless otherwise indicated by the Athletics Communications office. This policy includes practice sessions in Williams Stadium, as well as, the practice field adjacent to the Williams Football Operations Center (FOC).

Media groups wanting to photograph or shoot video footage of a Liberty University football practice can do so with prior permission. Approved media groups will be allowed to shoot Liberty University football practice from the time the team takes the field through the team stretching period (typically 15 minutes following the listed practice start time). Media groups will be asked to stop shooting practice following the team stretching period and to leave the practice area.

Flames head coach Turner Gill, his assistant coaches and players will be available for interviews following each of Liberty's weekday spring practice workouts.
