Salina’s indoor professional football team is preparing for its second season. Coming off a disappointing inaugural season, the Salina Liberty have high hopes for the upcoming 2017 season.
The team hosted a media conference on Wednesday.
Coach Eric Clayton said that they hope to put a better product on the field this year.
Clayton also announced the signing of about a half dozen players. Among them are last year’s leading tackler Brock Long. Long is local fan favorite. The Assaria native played in high school at Southeast of Saline and in college at Fort hays State University.
Another key player returning for another season in Salina will be Isiah Barfield. The former KU Jayhawk is the league’s 2016 Special Teams Player of the Year.
A new quarterback will guide the Liberty. The team introduced veteran signal-caller Josh Floyd Jr.
Floyd and Barfield both talked with KSAL.
The Liberty will begin the 2017 season at home on Sunday, March 5th, hosting the Wichita Force at the Salina Bicentennial Center.
