The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show spotlighting Liberty's football program, returns to the airwaves this evening at 7 p.m. The show is hosted weekly at Doc's and features Flames Head Coach Turner Gill and a different member of his coaching staff each week.

For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on the ESPNinVA network, which includes the following ESPN Radio stations in the Central Virginia area: 93.3 FM (Lynchburg), 106.3 FM (Danville), 1240 AM (Roanoke), 1320 AM (Lynchburg) and 1350 AM (Bedford).

The weekly show is hosted locally in Lynchburg on Liberty University's campus at Doc's, and the restaurant is open to the student body and 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 play-by-play broadcaster for football and men's basketball, hosts the call-in show, which features Liberty's third-year head football coach and will open this week with a segment with Flames' special teams coordinator and running backs coach Jamaal Fobbs.

During his first season at Liberty, Fobbs helped coach All-Big South running back Aldreakis Allen, who finished the year ranked No. 2 in the conference and No. 26 in the country in rushing.

As a team, Liberty finished the year ranked No. 35 in the country in rushing offense (175.82 yards per game) and No. 40 in total offense (402 yards per game).

In 2013, Fobbs was able to coach Desmond Rice to a near individual record-breaking season. The junior running back rushed for 967 yards and 16 touchdowns, the second most by a running back in a season in program history. As a team, the Flames did set a new program standard with 36 rushing touchdowns, surpassing the previous season mark of 32 set in 2007.

Following the 2013 season, additional responsibilities were given to Fobbs when Gill named his the program's Special Teams Coordinator.

Following the opening segment with Fobbs, York will welcome in Gill for the remainder of the hour-long show. Gill will look back at Liberty's 38-19 road setback at Indiana State and preview the Flames' home matchup with nationally ranked Richmond.

Following the first few segments with Gill, York will open up the phone lines and field questions from the radio listening audience or those seated inside Doc's. Fans unable to make it out to Doc's each Monday 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 Gill to LFSN@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flames Nation fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to any of the ESPNinVA network of stations in the Central Virginia area. The show will also air live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
