2019 Football Preview: Liberty Raiders

Glen Daniel, WV (WOAY) – Liberty football is optimistic that 2019 will be an improvement on the field compared to recent years.

The Raiders won last year’s finale against Wyoming East, their first win since 2016; they’re using that as part of their motivation to develop good habits in the preseason. They also benefit from several players in their first year with the program, along with a core of returning players.

Hear from Raiders head coach Mark Workman, junior Braden Howell, and junior Isaac Atkins.
