On the eve of Liberty’s 2015 football training camp opening, here are 3 positions to watch:
Anytime you lose a player that ends up in camp with an NFL team, that spot will be a question mark. After the offseason dismissal of Gary Sampson, the Flames now must replace both starting safeties from a season ago. If a younger player does not step up during camp, perhaps A.J. James will move back to safety after switching to linebacker prior to the spring.
The Flames must replace 75 career starts at linebacker after the graduation of Nick Sigmon, Dylan Lewellyn, Andrew Jauch, and Bobby Partilla. The trio projected to be the opening day starters combine for 8 career starts.
Depth at offensive line will be an issue, but the bigger question mark up front is who will be center. Lucas Holder enters camp atop the depth chart, but he has saw limited playing time in 12 games as a reserve in 2014.
