As Liberty starts to wrap up its final week of August Training Camp, Flames Head Coach Turner Gill took time to meet with the media following Thursday's practice.

During the media session, Gill talked about adding safety Solomon McGinty as Liberty's fourth team captain for the 2016 season. McGinty joins quarterback Stephon Masha, linebacker Dexter Robbins and offensive lineman Tanner Hartman as team captains for the season.

Gill also discussed how his coaching staff has been evaluating players toward the end of the August Training Camp and how the team is starting to prepare for its opener against Virginia Tech on Sept. 3.

Thursday marked the final morning practice of Liberty's August Training Camp. The Flames will shift to evening workouts on Friday and Saturday nights. On Friday, Liberty Athletics will host its annual President's Kickoff Event where the athletics department will educate the incoming freshman students on Liberty's game day traditions.
