2014 Liberty University Football Position Preview: Safeties
LibertyFlames.com continues its series today by looking at the Flames’ safeties, a group that is anchored by returning All-America free safety Jacob Hagen.
Hagen had a breakout season in 2013, earning Associated Press FCS All-America honors (third team), as well as being selected All-Big South first team and VaSID all-state first team.
Hagen finished the 2013 season with a career-best 61 tackles (34 solo, 27 assisted), which nearly doubled his career total through his first two seasons with the Flames (76 tackles).
He led the Big South and ranked No. 9 in the country in interceptions per game (0.5). His six picks during his junior season were the most interceptions by a Flame since Richard Shelton, who played five years in the NFL, finished the 1987 season with a half-dozen interceptions for Liberty.
