Liberty to Join the Atlantic Sun?

“Liberty is expected to make a major conference affiliation announcement on Thursday, multiple sources have confirmed,” aseaofred.com reported Wednesday. “This move could happen as soon as the 2018-19 school year. A press conference is expected to be scheduled for Thursday.

“Sources indicate Liberty is poised to accept an invitation to the ASUN for all sports except football, but we are still working on confirming that information.”

Sure enough, Liberty made a Twitter announcement just after 11 Thursday morning: Join us for a press conference regarding a major announcement for the future of Liberty Athletics.”

The press conference is scheduled for 2 p.m.

Michael Vick to speak at Liberty

Former Virginia Tech and NFL quarterback Michael Vick will speak to Liberty University students one week from today. Liberty officials say Vick will describe a life that took him from being an NFL star to a convicted criminal for dogfighting to forgiveness and redemption.

From Liberty University: Next week’s Convocation lineup at Liberty University will feature former NFL quarterback and current Fox Sports NFL analyst Michael Vick as well as inspirational authors Jay and Katherine Wolf.

Vick will speak in Convocation on Monday, Jan. 29. He will share his story and the lessons he learned on a journey that took him from being the highest paid player in the NFL to public humiliation after he pleaded guilty to illegal dogfighting. After serving 19 months in prison, Vick set out to change the narrative as he drew strength in his renewed relationship with God. From joining The Humane Society of the United States’ End Dogfighting campaign to addressing Congress to help pass the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, Vick’s story of forgiveness, redemption, and testimony is helping to impact change in at-risk communities around the country.
