Nearly the completion of its second week of the Flames' August Training Camp, head coach Turner Gill met with the media on Friday to discuss his team's preparation for the season.
The Flames held their 13th preseason practice out of 19 August Training Camp workouts on Friday, 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 fourth time this August and the second time this week. He recapped his team's progress and looked at some of the key position battles taking place this August.
Gill also previewed Liberty's planned scrimmage for Saturday evening, its second full scrimmage of August. He said the team plans to run between 60 to 65 plays during the evening workout. 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.
