• Goodbye Marcus

    Just over four years ago a two-star recruit running back by the name of Marcus Cox stepped onto the turf of Kidd-Brewer Stadium as the Appalachian State Mountaineers remained in the FCS for only one more season. Transitioning to the Sun Belt from the Southern Conference wouldn’t intimidate Cox,...
  • Becoming Predictable

    Doing something repetitive, it becomes predictable to others. It’s like living with someone. If you’re with them enough, you begin to figure out their habits. If you’re watching an App State football game, nine times out of 10 they’re going to run the ball. Already establishing themselves as an...
  • Man In The Middle

    Away from the field, senior offensive lineman Parker Collins carries a funny and lighthearted personality. But on a game day or at practice he flips the switch, becoming a loose cannon. His intensity is dialed up and he has the reputation of not only being a blue collar offensive...
  • Pinckney’s Progress

  • Matics’ heroics propels App State to tenth straight Sun Belt win

    Often times when a team plays an opponent better than themselves they improve as a result. The Troy Trojans (2-6, 1-3 Sun Belt) faced high-caliber opponents in NC State, Wisconsin and Mississippi State this season, while Appalachian State (7-1, 4-0 Sun Belt) has only had to face No. 3...
  • App State tops Troy in triple overtime thriller

                                After four quarters of regulation and several overtime possessions, Appalachian State (7-1, 4-0 Sun Belt) kicker Zach Matics sent a 24-yard field goal home to beat the Troy Trojans (2-6, 1-3 Sun Belt) 44-41. Although...
  • Maturing Marcus

    On the first play of Appalachian State football’s first drive Homecoming weekend, sophomore quarterback Taylor Lamb took the snap from the shotgun in the rainy, fog-covered weather.
