Alex Stadler (62) and Mike Brown (10) were two of Liberty's seven honorees on the 2010 VaSID all-state football squad.

Following their fourth-straight eight-win season, Liberty has placed seven players on the Virginia Sports Information Directors Association (VaSID) all-state football squad, honoring the top Division I football players in the Commonwealth (both FBS and FCS).

The Flames had seven all-state honorees, including four on the first-team listing. Liberty ranked second among all in-state football programs with four first-team honorees, behind Virginia Tech's 10 first-team selections.

Overall, Virginia Tech has 14 honorees on the 2010 all-state teams, while Liberty, Virginia and William & Mary tied for second with seven all-state squad members.

The seven all-state selections are the program's third-highest total honorees by the organization. Liberty had eight football players receive all-state accolades on the 2007 and 2008 VaSID all-state squad listings.

Liberty's first-team all-state honorees included Chris Summers (wide receiver), Alex Stadler (offensive guard), Asa Chapman (defensive line) and Matt Bevins (kicker). The trio of Mike Brown (quarterback), Justin Vargas (offensive tackle) and Terry Adams (defensive line) were Liberty's second-team all-state selections.
