Today's Flames Minute: Tuesday

Today's Flames Minute: Tuesday

This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Soundz Hearing in Lynchburg, for this Tuesday, October 27, 2020, I'm Nick Pierce.

Following a career and record setting day for Malik Willis, the Flames quarterback continues to grab national headlines. This week, Willis was named to the Davey O'Brien Great 8 list. Each year, the Davey O'Brien Award goes to the top quarterback in the nation. Last Saturday against Southern Miss, Willis threw for 345 yards and tied a school record with six touchdown passes while also rushing for 97 yards and another score.

"It's amazing. I didn't even know i threw six touchdowns (laughs). I was just trying to score so we could have some breathing room and get out of that game with another W. Like I said, God just continues to bless me."

Willis and the Flames will head to Blacksburg next Saturday, November 7th when Liberty meets Virginia Tech. That game will kick off at 12 Noon inside Lane Stadium.
