“He’s a big strong performer who has quickness and can get to the second level with his blocks,” said Liberty Head Coach Heron O’Neal. “He was the anchor to the offensive line last year and can also play the guard position.”

Brandon King is a 6’4”, 330 pound offensive and defensive lineman from Georgia. In high school, King was named one of Georgia’s top 100 prospects from He went on to play college football at Alabama A&M and the University of South Alabama.

“King is a versatile lineman who can play both sides of the ball, making him an asset to our team,” said O’Neal.

Dana Harris Jr. is a 6’3”, 318 pound offensive and defensive Lineman from Detroit, Michigan, where he attended Madison Heights High school. Harris then went on the Grand Rapids Community College, where he was an honorable mention in the All-Midwest football conference selections, while helping his team to an 11-0 undefeated season. He then went on to play at Youngstown State University.

“Harris is another versatile lineman capable of playing every position on both sides on the ball,” adds O’Neal. “Our staff has worked diligently targeting players such as Dana that can bring skill set to the table which is a necessity in indoor football.”

Ronald Buford Jr. is a 6’4″, 215 defensive lineman and defensive back. He attended Bluefield High School, where he helped them win two state championships. He then went on to play college football for the Bluefield Rams.
