2021 Football Preview: Liberty Raiders

GLEN DANIEL, WV (WOAY) – Liberty football has come a long way from the winless season in 2017. But even with an undefeated regular season in 2020, the Raiders say they’re not done improving.

There are many reasons for the Raiders to be excited about the upcoming year, apart from the chance to prove that 2020 was not a one-year deal. The new turf field in Glen Daniel is ready, and Liberty will play its first three games of the season at home.

Kicking off 2021 is the “Battle of ’76” against Raleigh County rivals Independence. Liberty came behind from an early deficit to win last year’s meeting in Coal City, and players and coaches believe a good result August 27 could be the start of another memorable year.
