Winnable

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. Opportunities to seize any game since the 1-1 start have been fumbled, thrown, and kicked away by the black and gold. Yet, this week’s journey to Troy offers a shot at the next winnable game for App.

J.B. Kouassi is Creating Pressure

Norcross (GA) High School is a perennial 6-A powerhouse, including the past two state championships. As you would imagine, they produce a stable of college prospects. This means that even a Georgia Elite Classic All-Star participant can fly under the recruiting radar. Meet JB Kouassi who led the Blue Devils in sacks last year. Kouassi gave App State Mania some time to introduce his quiet talent.

App State Basketball: Coach Fox as “007”

According to Appalachian State Basketball Coach Jim Fox a lot has happened in a week. As the sixth official practice of 2014 finished up in the Holmes Center, Fox admitted to stealthily inserting more and more of his game plan into practices. Then, Coach Fox gave App State Mania a few minutes to give his assessment of week one.

The Morning After…Liberty

It was painful, disappointing, unlikely, and maybe even unthinkable. It's gut check time. You up for it?

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. With seven new players, many of who will be called upon to contribute right away, and a brand new system to learn there’s no time for inefficiency.

App Commit Michael Rubino Is NC's Best

Kicking specialist Michael Rubino performed so well at summer kicking camps that he earned very high praise from revered kicking experts, and after he showed out at Appalachian State’s kicking camp he earned their highest praise — a scholarship offer. During a September 6th game day visit to Boone Rubino accepted that offer. This week, Rubino talked to App State Mania about his commitment.

Victor Johnson Produces Unsolicited Embraces

Offensive lineman Victor Johnson became Appalachian State’s eighth 2015 commitment on Wednesday, September 24th, but not without some detour of intentions. Johnson’s initial verbal commitment went to East Carolina, but after time and reflection Johnson felt the Mountaineer Program would feel more like home. Victor sat down with App State Mania to introduce himself to the Mountaineer faithful.

App State Basketball Taking the Court

It's a football Saturday in Boone, but not all of the action is in Kidd Brewer Stadium. Appalachian State Basketball start their climb up the Sun Belt Conference and App State Mania provides exclusive coverage.

Elderkin Named Women’s Basketball Head Coach

After a perplexing late-in-the-game resignation by women's basketball coach Darcie Vincent, Appalachian State was forced to conduct a quick search for a replacement as the 2014-15 season loomed. Now, we know that coach is Angel Elderkin.

Obe Fortune is a Family Man

Obe Fortune is moving up. After a transition to Milton High School (GA), Fortune saw his offer list multiply, including ACC and Big Ten options. But Fortune has very specific requirements of his eventual destination and Fortune’s emphasis on family atmosphere will heavily influence his decision. After a game day visit to Appalachian State, Fortune has the Mountaineers moving up his own list.

High Expectations Driving D’Andre Plantin

Norcross High School (GA) senior D’Andre Plantin has tough standards to live up to; his own. As Plantin enters his third and final season as a Blue Devil letterman he will need to help lead Norcross to a 6-A state title just to equal the past two years, after back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013. Join App State Mania to catch up on Plantin's latest immediate and long-term plans.

App Commit Emarius Logan is All Smiles

On September 5th star guard Emarius Logan of White Knoll High School got to Boone to take his official visit at Appalachian State. Logan already knew was that he was close to making a commitment to the Mountaineers and got the final answers he needed in order to give Coach Jim Fox his commitment. Logan took time to review the weekend, his game, and his commitment with App State Mania.
