Updated depth chart
Coach Gill released the updated depth chart following training camp earlier this week. We gave you our 4 notables from the new depth chart including several new faces that will be called on in 2015.
Gill gets 10th commitment
The Flames picked up their 10th commitment Wednesday night when DB Jimmy Faulks, Jr gave his verbal pledge to Coach Gill. Faulks was part of the winning 7-on-7 team from a camp at Liberty in July.
Update on other football commits
A few of Liberty’s commits have begun their senior season and we’ve been able to track down some statistics from their opening games. Stephen Calvert threw for 2 touchdowns while leading his team to a big win. Calvert’s Carol City High team played in their 2nd game of the season Thursday night as he again threw for 2 touchdowns. Rud Yearick threw for 164 yards and 1 touchdown while rushing for 85 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 40-3 win. Brandon Tillmon, who will likely play safety at Liberty, was 14-of-19 passing for 208 yards and a touchdown and 55 yards rushing while playing quarterback. We will continue to bring updates on each of Liberty’s football commits throughout their senior seasons as we are able to find the information.
