Football Takes Day Off To Host Annual Media Day
With just two days left in training camp, the football program took a day off from practice to host its annual media day on Sunday at Williams Stadium.
The afternoon's event started with a press conference in the press box and the event drew a larger crowd of media than in years past. Coach Rocco addressed the media, followed by a question-and-answer section with Rocco and team captains Rashad Jennings (So., RB), Jason Horn (Sr., DL), Manny Rojas (Sr., LB) and Jarrett Winfrey (Sr., OF).
Following the press conference, the rest of the day's festivities took place down on the field, which included taking of the 2006 team photo and several group and individual photos.
The installation crew that has been installing the new FieldTurf took the afternoon off, allowing for the team photo to been taken in front of the new Williams Football Operation Center. Click here to view a thumbnail version of the team photo.
The Flames will resume practice tomorrow afternoon at 2:20 p.m. at the practice field behind the Hancock Athletic Center, while the team will host its final training camp practice with a scrimmage on Tuesday (also at 2:20 p.m.).
Following their scrimmage session on Tuesday, the Flames will take Wednesday afternoon off for the first day of classes at the University. Liberty will begin to implement its game plan for its season-opener against St. Paul's (August 31 at 7 p.m.) with its practice on Thursday.
Thursday's practice starts at 4 p.m. and will run to 6 p.m. which will be the Flames normal daily practice time. All practice sessions throughout the season are open to the public and will take place at Williams Stadium once the FieldTurf installation is complete.
