With a week and a half of practices in the books, Flames Head Football Coach Turner Gill met with the media on Tuesday to discuss his team's preparation for the season.

The Flames held their ninth preseason practice out of 19 August Training Camp workouts on Tuesday, finishing the practice just prior to Noon in the Liberty Indoor Practice Facility.

Following the two and a half hour workout, Gill met with the media for the third time this August and the second since his team started practicing. He recapped his team's progress as their near the midway point of training camp and provided an update on last Thursday's scrimmage.

The Flames will hold five straight morning workouts from 9:20 to 11:45 a.m., this week, in preparation for the team's second full scrimmage of August on Saturday evening. As a reminder, all of Liberty's practices are closed to the general public.

Rise With Us: The Process

On Feb. 16, 2017, the NCAA approved Liberty's waiver request to begin the two-year FBS reclassification process. Liberty completed its final season as a FCS program in 2017, playing as a member of the Big South Conference.

The Flames will host their first FBS home game against Old Dominion on Sept. 1, the first of four FBS teams to visit Williams Stadium in 2018 to meet the FBS reclassification criteria. The 2018 home schedule also features FBS matchups against North Texas (Sept. 22), Troy (Oct. 13) and New Mexico State (Nov. 24).

In the event that Liberty is invited to the AutoNation Cure Bowl, Flames Club members will have priority for tickets and other associated events and privileges.
