The Flames have added another piece to its football roster as Liberty continues to build its talent base for its move to the FBS level. On Saturday, Josh Mack decided to transfer to Liberty.
Mack comes to the Hill City through the University of Maine where he led all of FCS in rushing as a sophomore in 2017 with 1,335 yards and 9 touchdowns while averaging 5.5 yards per carry. He was also 2nd on the Black Bears in receiving with 30 catches for 209 yards. His 133.9 rushing yards per game led all FCS rushers and was 3rd in FCS with 161.5 all-purpose yards per game. He was named first-team all-American by STATS and the Associated Press.
The 6’1″, 198 pound back is originally from Rochester, New York and led Maine in rushing as a freshman with 712 yards and 6 touchdowns. He will have to sit out the 2018 season due to NCAA transfer requirements and will have 2 seasons of eligibility remaining.
