May 10, 2014 : Liberty University Athletics
Former Flames standout cornerback Walt Aikens became the seventh player in program history to be selected in the NFL Draft when the Miami Dolphins picked him in the fourth round earlier on Saturday.
Aikens was the 125th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and is the first Flame selected in the draft since Rashad Jennings was taken in the seventh round in 2009.
"I am thrilled for Walt being selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins," said Liberty Head Football Coach Turner Gill. "People can see his athleticism, but he also has the intangibles that coaches look for in their athletes. He is a fierce competitor, a hard worker and is passionate about the game of football."
