  College Player Notes by School: Appalachian State  
Previous 25 Appalachian State Notes Next 25 Appalachian State Notes

01/02/19 - (CB) - *Clifton Duck, Jr, 5-10, 175
Appalachian State junior defensive back Clifton Duck has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. He announced his decision on Tuesday afternoon through a Twitter post. Duck is the first App State player to leave early for the NFL during the FBS era, and he's believed to be the first in school history. "I would like to thank all the people who have supported me on this journey," Duck's message said. "Playing at App State was the opportunity of a lifetime - three straight Sun Belt championships and three straight bowl wins are memories I will always cherish. "Special thanks to my Mom, Dad and my siblings for their never-ending support. Thanks to Coach (Bryan) Brown for what he taught me about the game. To the LOB (Legion of Boone) and my teammates - my brothers forever." Underclassmen have until Jan. 14 to apply for special eligibility for the draft. Should he carry out that process, he will forgo his senior season and cannot return to App State. His decision also puts an end to a stellar cornerback tandem. Tae Hayes, who started opposite Duck, just finished his senior season. Both were key figures in a defense that's grabbed 73 interceptions since the start of the 2015 season. - Andrew Dye/Journal Now


12/17/18 - (QB) - Zac Thomas, So, 6-0, 200
While the future of Appalachian State interim coach Mark Ivey is unknown, Mountaineers players left no doubt about how much they appreciated the way he handled his lone game in charge, carrying him off the field in triumph. "It was an honor," said Ivey, a former Appalachian State player who took over when Scott Satterfield left for Louisville two weeks ago. "I'm glad that the kids think enough about me to want to celebrate with me and have fun because I love every one of those kids. They are exceptional." Appalachian State receiver Malik Williams passed for two touchdowns on trick plays, quarterback Zac Thomas caught a scoring pass and threw for three more, and the Mountaineers routed Middle Tennessee 45-13 in the New Orleans Bowl on Saturday night. Camerun Peoples had a 63-yard touchdown run for the Mountaineers (11-2), who gave Ivey, a former Appalachian State player, a victory in what might have been his only chance to coach his alma mater. - AP College Football


11/17/18 - (QB) - Zac Thomas, So, 6-0, 200
Zac Thomas was 20 of 24 for 282 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions to help Appalachian State beat Georgia State 45-17 on Saturday. The Mountaineers (8-2, 6-1 Sun Belt Conference) won their third straight and kept their hopes alive to win a share of the East Division title, closing the season next Saturday against Troy, which is 7-0 in conference play. Darrynton Evans ran 15 times for 127 yards and a touchdown and Corey Sutton caught four passes for 101 yards and a score. App State outgained the Panthers 524-329, had no penalties and converted all three of its fourth down attempts. Dan Ellington passed for 132 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions and ran 19 times for 113 yards for Georgia State (2-9, 1-6). Georgia State scored a touchdown on the opening possession. App State then scored 31 straight and outscored the Panthers 45-3 before Georgia State capped the scoring with another TD. - AP College Football


11/11/18 - (QB) - Zac Thomas, So, 6-0, 200
Zac Thomas passed for 247 yards and two touchdowns and Darrynton Evans added a pair of TD runs to propel Appalachian State to a 38-7 victory over Texas State on Saturday. The Mountaineers (7-2, 5-1 Sun Belt Conference) jumped out to a 7-0 lead on their first possession when Thomas connected with Dominique Heath from the 8-yard line. The score was set up when Austin Exford recovered a Willie Jones III fumble at the Appalachian State 33 on the Bobcats' first series. The Mountaineers added a pair of second-quarter TDs - Thomas' 1-yard pass to C. Reed and a 1-yard plunge by Evans - to grab a 21-0 lead at halftime. Appalachian State used just two plays - capped by Evans' 79-yard TD run - on their first possession of the third quarter to push the lead to 28-0. Texas State's only score came on Tyler Vitt's 6-yard TD toss to Keenen Brown midway through the third quarter. The Bobcats (3-7, 1-5) managed just 218 yards of offense. Evans finished with 86 yards on nine carries and Thomas added 76 yards on 11 totes. - AP College Football

He was the lead tackler on the safety that gave App State a two-possession lead in the fourth quarter. He just missed a fourth sack with a QB hurry on the play right after his third sack. The Mountaineers' defense did not allow a point to the Coastal offense and held the Chanticleers to 178 total yards, 72 rushing yards and 11 first downs. - Sun Belt Football


11/03/18 - (RB) - Darrynton Evans, Jr, 5-10, 191
Darrynton Evans ran for 159 yards and a touchdown as Appalachian State beat Coastal Carolina 23-7 on Saturday night.

Jacob Huesman threw a 33-yard touchdown pass to Corey Xavier Sutton in the second quarter for Appalachian State (6-2, 4-1). Huesman was 9-of-19 passing for 127 yards. Derambez Drinkard intercepted Huesman twice, including a 60-yard pick-6 in the first quarter for Coastal Carolina's (5-4, 2-3) only score. Appalachian State played for the first time at Coastal Carolina and leads the series 5-0. - AP College Football


10/22/18 - (RB) - Darrynton Evans, Jr, 5-10, 191
OCT 22 SUN BELT CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Darrynton Evans, Appalachian State (So., RB, Oak Hill, Fla.)...In his second career start, Evans set career highs with 203 all-purpose yards, 183 rushing yards and 26 rushing attempts, scoring two total touchdowns to lead App State to a 27-17 victory over Louisiana. His 20-yard reception in the first half was his first career receiving TD. He also had a touchdown run that gave the Mountaineers an early 7-0 lead. On a day when the Mountaineers passing attack wasn't clicking on all cylinders, Evans carried the load, including a third-quarter, 65-yard run that set up an App State touchdown to give his team a 24-10 lead. On the season, Evans now has three rushing touchdowns, a receiving touchdown and a kickoff return touchdown. - Sun Belt Football


10/20/18 - (RB) - Darrynton Evans, Jr, 5-10, 191
Darrynton Evans ran for a career-best 183 yards and a touchdown to help Appalachian State get past Louisiana-Lafayette 27-17 on Saturday to maintain a perfect record in Sun Belt Conference play.

10/16/18 - (OLB) - Jordan Fehr, Jr, 6-2, 226
OCT 15 SUN BELT DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jordan Fehr, Appalachian State (Jr., LB, Charlotte, N.C.)...Appalachian State junior linebacker Jordan Fehr totaled a career-high 14 tackles and made his first career solo sack in leading a defense that kept Arkansas State out of the end zone in a 35-9 Mountaineer road win. Six of his tackles were on plays that gained 1 yard or less, while seven were on plays that gained 2 yards or less. The first-year starting inside linebacker previously had a career high of nine tackles at Penn State. Fehr helped App State post a second-half shutout for the fourth straight game. The Mountaineers have a nation-best string of four consecutive games holding opponents to single-digit points. It was the first time the Red Wolves had been held to single digits in Jonesboro since 2007. - Sun Belt Football

His second-quarter punt block led to a 9-yard Darrynton Evans touchdown run on the next play. Just over a minute later, Jones also provided an early block that helped spring Clifton Duck to a 62-yard punt return for another score. App State has now scored a nation-high four special teams touchdowns this season. - Sun Belt Football

He added 29 rushing yards and another score on the ground. Thomas is the first quarterback in the history of App State and the Sun Belt Conference to complete at least 10 passes and have no incompletions in a game.

The recovery time for Moore is eight to 12 weeks, putting an end to the senior standout's career with the Mountaineers. He was hurt at the end of a 27-yard touchdown run in Tuesday's game.

10/11/18 - (RB) - Darrynton Evans, Jr, 5-10, 191
Darrynton Evans ran for 115 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries to help Appalachian State beat Arkansas State 35-9 on Tuesday night.

Evans' 1-yard TD run made it 21-9 with 45 seconds left in the half. Jalin Moore got the Mountaineers on the scoreboard with a 27-yard TD run early in the second quarter. He suffered a right ankle injury while being tackled as he reached for the end zone and was carted off the field. Blake Grupe made all three of his field-goal attempts, including a career-long 47-yarder that gave the Red Wolves (3-3, 0-2) a 6-0 lead. - AP College Football
