We’re into the teens! Kickoff will be here before you know it! The Flames have two athletes who will wear #19 this season – Walt Aikens and Austin Kaigler.


Walt is a 6’1″ 200 pound senior cornerback from Harding University High School in Charlotte, North Carolina. He transferred to the Flames from Illinois prior to the 2011 season. At Illinois, he played in 10 games as a true freshman and earned All-Big Ten freshman honors from the Sporting News. He has been named to the Big South All-Conference second team in each of his first two seasons with the Flames while starting all 22 contests. Last season he recorded 51 tackles which led all Liberty defensive backs.

Kaigler is a sophomore running back from Westminster Christian High School in Huntsville, Alabama. He rushed for over 1,200 yards while averaging 9.2 yards per carry as a senior on his way to being named an All-Metro running back.
