The Flames Sports Hotline, a weekly radio call-in show featuring head football coach Danny Rocco and members of his staff, returns this evening at 7 p.m. For the second year in a row, the Flames Sports Hotline will air weekly on Victory FM (88.3 FM), the flagship radio station for the Flames Sports Network.

The weekly show is hosted locally in Lynchburg on Liberty University's campus at Doc's Diner, and the restaurant is open to 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 "Voice of the Flames," will host the call-in show, which will open weekly with a 10-minute segment with a member of Rocco's coaching staff. This week, York will begin the 60-minute show by welcoming offensive line coach Blaine McCorkle.

McCorkle has been a part of the Flames' coaching staff for a total of six seasons, including the last three since returning to reprise his offensive line coaching position in 2009.

Last year, McCorkle instructed a senior-laden front five, including a pair of Big South first-team all-conference linemen in Alex Stadler and Justin Vargas. His group helped block for the nation's leading offensive threat, with quarterback Mike Brown finishing No. 1 in the country in total offense (346.36 yards per game).

This year's younger group is keeping pace with their predecessors, as Brown comes into this weekend's game with Kentucky Wesleyan ranked No. 5 in total offense. The Walter Payton Award candidate is averaging 325.50 total offensive yards per game, which accounts for 84.7 percent of Liberty's total offense in 2011 (1302 of 1537 yards).

Following the opening portion of the show, York will welcome Rocco for his first segment. The pair will talk about Liberty's second-straight, three-point setback to a Top 25 program and how the Flames are looking to rebound this week at home against Kentucky Wesleyan.

Rocco is currently his sixth year at the helm of the program and has guided Liberty to four-straight Big South Conference titles and five-consecutive winning seasons.

Following the first segment with Rocco, York will open up the phone lines and field questions from the radio listening audience or those seated inside Doc's Diner. Fans unable to make it out to Doc's Diner each Tuesday 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 Rocco to FSNbroadcast@liberty.edu, prior to the start of the show.

Flame fans can listen to the show locally by tuning their radio dials to Victory FM (88.3 FM Lynchburg) or one of their local affiliates for the Victory FM Radio Network. The show will also air live online at LibertyFlames.com and can be heard by clicking on the link above.
