Last week, Liberty's football roster grew by one member when Nathan Norman inked his national letter of intent to join the Flames' program.

The special ceremony was held in the Team Room of the Football Operations Center (FOC) before the entire Flames' roster, who welcomed their newest member with open arms.

Following Nathan's signing day press conference, the newest member of Liberty's team received a tour of the FOC, including the weight room and locker room, plus had dinner with the team.

Nathan, a nine-year boy who hails from nearby Rustburg, Va., has spent the last seven years of his life battling cancer.

Nathan was matched up with Liberty's football program through Team IMPACT, a national organization, based in Boston, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children facing life-threatening and chronic illnesses through the power of team.

Team IMPACT children are drafted on to college athletic teams, local to where they live and, in effect, become official members of the team. Established in 2011, Team IMPACT has already matched over 850 children with collegiate teams at over 300 institutions in 45 states, improving the quality of life of hundreds of courageous children and touching the lives of over 25,000 student athletes.
