Liberty's Willis Has Waiver Denied

Quarterback Malik Willis transferred from Auburn to Liberty in the offseason, and applied for a waiver to gain immediate eligibility. But Wednesday, the University got word that the waiver had been denied and Willis will have to sit out this season. He'll have two years of eligibility remaining. That means that Stephen "Buckshot" Calvert won't have to look over his shoulder this season. Calvert is the Flames unquestioned starter and leader as a senior.
