Appalachian State Football is 1-5, nothing can divert attention from that fact. There’s also nothing preventing the Mountaineers from being anything from 2-4 to 4-2, except App State themselves.

Yet, this week’s journey to Troy offers a shot at the next winnable game for App.

DETAILS MARK FIRST FOX PRACTICE

Coach Jim Fox took the 2014-15 Appalachian State team out on the floor for his first official practice on October 4th. The practice was a non-stop, fast-paced test of precision and focus, both of which Fox demands.
