Lynchburg - The injury bug continues to strike the Liberty Flames.
The latest player to go down is freshman kicker John Lunsford, the Big South Special Teams Player of the Week, expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks with a hip strain. The Flames enter Saturday's Big South game at Presbyterian off a big comeback win over Gardner-Webb. Down 28-10 in the third quarter, redshirt freshman QB Josh Woodrum helped lead the Liberty charge, throwing for a career-high 373 yards and three TD's, hitting nearly 81 percent of his passes. Now the Flames try and nail down that first ROAD WIN of the season at Presbyterian.
Turner Gill, LIBERTY FLAMES HEAD COACH, said "We still have some things to figure out but I think we're definitely headed in the right direction and I think Josh is very instrumental in that and I think our players, too. Like I said the continuity of him being in the huddle, being on the sideline and knowing what he does and how does it, it helps our football team to be more consistent in our play."
Josh Woodrum, FLAMES R-FRESHMAN QUARTERBACK, said "If you lose one in this conference, it's pretty hard to win it all. So you know I think a lot of these teams have a pretty good running corps this year and you know we're gonna try our best. You know each game we're going to treat as a championship game and you know hopefully come out with a "w" this weekend."
