Football Season 2012

July 23, 2012

One of the best aspects of Liberty is our incredible Athletics! The University offers 20 NCAA Division 1 athletic teams and 31 club sport teams. So no matter what sports you enjoy, there is something for everyone to watch. My personal favorite is FOOTBALL! Last year I went to our opening game at NC State and had a blast. This fall I hope to go to our opening game against Wake Forest in Winston Salem on September 1st, only 40 days left!!

When I decided to attend Liberty, I had no idea about college football and how big of a deal it was! I didn’t even know our school colors! Well, needless to say, that changed my first day at Liberty when I heard our motto: Be EARLY, Be LOUD, Wear RED.  When you walk into Williams Stadium for a game all you see is red and all you hear is cheering! I would encourage all freshmen and transfer students to get a red Liberty shirt and head out for our first home game on September 8th against Norfolk State! This season is going to be extra special because it is Turner Gill's first coaching season at Liberty! Check out our Flames Football Hype video for the coming football season!
