Liberty Flames Football Show kicks off on Monday

LibertyWith less than two weeks remaining before Liberty kicks off the season at home against No. 22 Syracuse, the Liberty Flames Football Show returns to the radio airways on Monday night at 6 p.m.

The 60-minute weekly coach’s radio show moves to a new location for the 2019 season, as the Monday night show will be hosted at the Iron & Ale restaurant at 106 Cornerstone Street, Lynchburg.

Alan York, the radio play-by-play broadcaster for football and men’s basketball, hosts the call-in show, which traditionally will feature Liberty Flames Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze and a member of his coaching staff.
