49, 61, 65 and now 59.

That's the number of points put on the scoreboard each of the last four weeks by the Liberty Lions and their starting QB Tyler Rodgers.

In their latest win over Peoria, 59-25, Tyler Rodgers threw for 4 touchdowns. He also had 80 yards rushing and another TD on the ground. He has now scored 18 touchdowns in the first four games. 13 passing TDs, 5 rushing TDs.

The 6 foot 3, 190 lb SR already has offers from Air Force and South Dakota State according to Rivals.

You can expect more if he continues to play at this level.

His next opponent will be the most difficult yet. Liberty will face Sunrise Mountain this Friday, Sept. 21.

You can expect a shootout when the two undefeated teams take the field.

Sunrise Mountain scored 79 points against Copper Canyon last weekend. WR Elroy Masters found the end zone 5 times in the game. The 6'3" receiver is starting to get his own college offers thanks to his 4.4 speed and size (200 lbs).
