Coach Recruiting Interview

The Liberty Flames made some huge noise in their first year of MCLA Division 1 action with an SELC title game appearance. Two-time All-American attackman Ryan Miller absolutely tore it up this year with 58 goals and 24 assists. Coach Kyle McQuillan has brought the Flames national recognition within year one of the program. He has been an exceptional recruiter, and looks to bring in more talent with the 2015 class to add depth to the #21 ranked MCLA team in the land.

What positive surprises did you see from your team this season?

We honestly did not have very many surprises. We hold our team to a high standard and felt we met all of our the expectations except for winning the SELC title. Moving up from division 2 to division 1 was a big step but we felt it was the right decision and we are excited to compete next season for the SELC Championship again.

How did your season stack up against your expectations going into the season?

Our expectation every year, like all teams, is to win our conference title. Although we were unable to walk away with the SELC Championship we were able to meet all of our other goals. Finishing in the top 25 nationally and setting a name for ourselves within Div1. of the MCLA was our priority, and I think the team did just that.

Where did your team improve the most during the season and which player’s took a step forward in their game?

We have been viewed as a very offensively minded team the past few years, but this year our defense stepped up in a major way. We saw great play by all of our poles, Tommy Rolewicz, Captain Brandt Grauss, Travis Briggs, Nate Whyte, LSM Mike Zumpano and Goalie Ethan Kamholtz.

Where can next year’s team improve in order to reach your ultimate goal for the season?

Adding to our teams depth is our current focus. We have all the talent and ability on our team now, and we are dedicated to adding support.

Which incoming players are you most excited about and how do they fit with the type of team you are building?

We are currently in the midst of our recruiting process right now but we are extremely excited for some very talented incoming freshman, as well as a few transfers. We lost some great seniors but I am confident we will be an even better team in 2015.
