The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show featuring head football coach Danny Rocco and members of his staff, returns this evening at 7 p.m. For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on Victory FM (88.3 FM – Lynchburg, Roanoke, Danville), the flagship radio station for the Flames Sports Network.

The weekly show is hosted locally in Lynchburg on Liberty University's campus at Doc's Diner, and the restaurant is open to 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," will host the call-in show, which opens weekly with a 10-minute segment with a member of Rocco's coaching staff. This week, York will begin the 60-minute show by welcoming assistant linebackers coach Manny Rojas.

Rojas is in his second year as a full-time member of the Flames coaching staff and has excelled this season helping instruct a young linebacking corps which has become a vital part of Liberty's nationally ranked defense. Following the Presbyterian College game, Liberty ranks No. 14 scoring defense (18.89 points per game) and No. 21 in total defense (315.11 yards allowed per game).

Inside linebackers Nick Sigmon and Scott Hyland have quickly emerged as two of Liberty's top defenders. Sigmon leads the Flames with 51 tackles, while Hyland ranks fifth on the squad with 40 stops. The pair made the final two tackles in Liberty's double overtime victory over Presbyterian College, including a 12-yard sack by Hyland.

Following the opening portion of the show, York will welcome Rocco for his first segment. The pair will talk about Liberty surviving a 27-20 double overtime game against Presbyterian College, plus take a look ahead at Liberty's final regular-season home event against VMI this weekend.

Rocco is currently his sixth year at the helm of the program and has guided Liberty to four-straight Big South Conference titles and five-consecutive winning seasons.

Following the first segment with Rocco, 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 Tuesday 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 Rocco to FSNbroadcast@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flame fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to Victory FM (88.3 FM Lynchburg) or one of their local affiliates for the Victory FM Radio Network. The show will also air live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
