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' linebackers coach Josh Bookbinder.

During his first year as a member of the Flames' coaching staff, Bookbinder helped the Flames rank No. 5 in scoring defense (17.6 points allowed per game), No. 9 in the country in total defense (313.9 yards allowed per game) and No. 16 in passing yards allowed per game (178.6).

The 2013 season saw the Flames finish the year ranked No. 3 in the country in turnover margin (1.3) and No. 5 in passes intercepted (19).

Linebacker Nick Sigmon earned his third-straight all-conference honor in 2013 and second-consecutive first-team All-Big South selection. He finished the year tied for the team lead with 62 tackles (30 solo, 32 assisted) and led the team with 10.5 tackles for a loss.

Following the opening segment with Bookbinder, York will welcome in Gill for the remainder of the hour-long show. Gill will recap Liberty's 34-0 shutout victory over Gardner-Webb and preview the Flames' first road Big South contest of the year at Presbyterian.

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, 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 and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
