Liberty football opens preseason training camp on Monday

libertyLiberty will officially begin preparation for the 2016 football season on Monday when the Flames hold their first preseason training camp practice, starting at 9:15 a.m.

Liberty’s football players are returning to campus on Sunday and fifth-year head coach Turner Gill will hold his first team meeting of the season later that night inside the Williams Football Operations Center.

In keeping with the NCAA’s acclimation period policies, the Flames will hold two practice sessions in just helmets (Aug. 8-9) and two more in half pads (Aug. 10-11). Liberty will have its first practice of the year in full pads on Aug. 12.

All Liberty University football practice sessions are closed to the general public and the media, unless otherwise indicated by the Athletics Communications office.

This policy includes practice sessions in Williams Stadium, as well as, the practice field adjacent to the Williams Football Operations Center. Liberty will also hold one closed off-campus practice during the month of August (Aug. 13).

Video and still photography will be allowed only during the first 15 minutes of each of Liberty’s daily workout sessions. No photography of any kind will be allowed following the stretching period of the team’s daily practices.

Media outlets planning on attending any training camp practices should contact the Athletics Communications office at least 24 hours in advance with interview requests and which practices they plan to attend.

Gill, his assistant coaches and players will be available after the following August training camp workouts: Aug. 8, 12, 15, 19, 22, 25 and 28.

Liberty will resume its normal weekly media availability starting the week of Aug. 30 leading up to the Flames’ opener at Virginia Tech on Sept. 3.
