LibertyFlames.com continues its spring practice coverage today with LFSN reporter Alan York visiting with junior cornerback Wesley Scott.

Following a successful freshman campaign, Scott finished the 2014 season with a career-best 49 tackles (29 solo, 20 assisted). He started seven of the 13 games he saw action in and ranked third on the team with six passes defended (five breakups and his first career interception).

Scott, along with junior safety Gary Sampson, will be looked upon to lead Liberty's defensive backfield in 2015. The unit is looking to replace All-America safety Jacob Hagen (108 tackles, eighth interceptions) and cornerback Kenny Scott (64 tackles, three interceptions, 11 passes defended), who graduated last year.

The Flames wrapped up their second week of spring practice today with a closed scrimmage at Williams Stadium. Liberty will hold three practice sessions next week, all from 4 to 6:30 p.m. (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). The weekday practices are free and open to the public.

LibertyFlames.com will continue its coverage of spring practice next week when York catches up with Head Coach Turner Gill (Tuesday), along with All-Big South offensive lineman Jonathan Burgess (Thursday) and All-America kicker John Lunsford (Saturday)
