Appalachian State junior QB Taylor Lamb completed 19-of-26 passes for 155 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 23-20 win over Idaho.

Lamb brought Appalachian State back from a 17-0 halftime deficit, connecting on all three of his touchdown passes in the second half to lead the path to victory for the Mountaineers. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder has thrown for 1,197 yards with an 11/3 TD/INT ratio in six games this season.
Oct 14 - 8:58 PM

Appalachian State redshirt junior RB Jalin Moore rushed for 241 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries in Saturday's 45-31 win over New Mexico State.

Now that's more like it. Moore rushed for 1,402 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, but he had failed to surpass 60 yards rushing in any of Appalachian State's four games this year prior to finally breaking through in a big way versus the Aggies. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder put an exclamation point on Saturday's monster showing with a 56-yard touchdown gallop with just over two minutes remaining in the contest. Now that he's shaken off the cobwebs after the slow start to the campaign, he'll try for an encore of Saturday's showing when the Mountaineers travel to Moscow for a date with Idaho next weekend.
Oct 7 - 7:25 PM

Appalachian State senior WR Shaedon Meadors (undisclosed) will take a redshirt for the season.

Meadors (6'2/185) has not played in a game this season, mostly due to a hamstring injury which has been stubborn to heal. A year ago, the then-junior served as the team's leading option in the receiving game, catching 45 passes for 716 yards and two touchdowns over the course of 12 games played. Now taking a redshirt, he will have one season of eligibility remaining beginning in 2018.
Oct 4 - 8:26 PM

Appalachian State junior QB Taylor Lamb threw for 350 yards and two scores in a 20-19 loss to Appalachian State on Saturday.

Lamb (6'2/200) missed some throws, but he was the reason that the Mountaineers had a chance to pull off the upset. He made several big throws against the Wake Forest secondary, the biggest being an 84-yard touchdown to T.J. Watkins to give Appalachian State a 16-10 lead in the middle of the third quarter. Lamb and Appalachian State will take New Mexico State after their bye in what should be a shootout.
Sep 23 - 7:10 PM

Appalachian State redshirt junior RB Jalin Moore (leg/foot) is starting against Wake Forest on Saturday.

Moore was labeled a game-time decision after coming up injured in the second half against North Texas last weekend. Just how much of a workload he is able to handle remains to be seen. Terrence Upshaw figures to see his fair share of carries, too, particularly if Moore looks limited early.
Sep 23 - 3:39 PM

Appalachian State redshirt junior RB Jalin Moore (leg/foot) is questionable for Saturday's game against West Forest.

"He is progressing well. He made strides today. He will probably be a game-time decision as we head down toward the end of the week," said HC Scott Satterfield. Moore (5'11/205) was injured in the second half against North Texas this past weekend. He was sporting a boot at practice on Tuesday, but was not encumbered by support while roaming the sidelines on Wednesday (he did not practice). Should the redshirt junior be unable to play against the Demon Deacons this weekend, Terrence Upshaw will likely see the bulk of carries for the Mountaineers.
Sep 21 - 6:52 PM

Appalachian State redshirt junior RB Jalin Moore rushed for just 14 yards on nine carries in Saturday's 20-13 win over Texas State.

Moore crushed the universe for 1,402 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, but there has been little universe-crushing this time around, at least not so far. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound redshirt junior has been held under 60 yards rushing in each of Appalachian State's three games to date and has received just 18 carries in the last two contests. A home showdown with Wake Forest shows next on the schedule for Moore and the Mountaineers.
Sep 16 - 10:36 PM

Appalachian State junior QB Taylor Lamb completed 12-of-15 passes for 327 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday's 54-7 win over Savannah State.

This was Lamb's best overall showing of his collegiate career. The five touchdown passes were the most he has thrown in a game, while his 327 yards passing now stand as his second-best effort through the air (he threw for 397 yards against Liberty back in 2014). Last season, he posted more than 200 yards passing in just five games -- none of which went for 300 yards.
Sep 10 - 1:47 PM

Appalachian State redshirt junior RB Jalin Moore ran 13 times for 29 yards on Saturday in a 31-10 loss to Georgia.

Moore (5'11/205) is a monster of an athlete who ran for 1,402 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, but he couldn't get anything going against the Georgia defense. He was actually more effective as a receiver, catching four passes for 34 yards. The run defenses he'll face in the coming weeks are much softer, so Moore should get back on track, starting with a showdown with Savannah State next Saturday.
Sep 2 - 10:14 PM

Appalachian State redshirt junior RB Jalin Moore squats 630 pounds, benches 385 and has been clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.48 seconds.

"Not only is he strong, explosive and fast, his conditioning is through the roof. He runs conditioning times with our skill guys, and nine out of 10 times he's in the front of the whole group," one member of the Mountaineers coaching staff told Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman. Moore (5'11/205) earned Sun Belt Player of the Year honors after rushing for 1,402 yards (5.9 YPC) and 10 touchdowns in 2016.
Jul 7 - 4:15 PM

Former Kansas State sophomore WR Corey Sutton transferred to Appalachian State.

Sutton dominated the college football news cycle earlier this month after he and HC Bill Snyder feuded over Sutton's decision to transfer. Snyder and Kansas State denied Sutton's release to all 35 schools he requested, leading Sutton to take his case to the public. Facing intense pressure, KSU ultimately granted Sutton's release, leading to his move east. Sutton, a three-star recruit, caught four passes for 54 yards last year. He must sit out the 2017 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He’ll have three seasons of eligibility remaining as a redshirt sophomore in 2018.
Jun 24 - 10:32 AM

Appalachian State redshirt senior RB Terrence Upshaw (academics) scored three touchdowns in the team's final spring scrimmage.

Upshaw was returning to the field after missing all of 2016 due to academics. "It’s nice to have him back," running backs coach Stu Holt said. "It was a tough year for him, more of a technicality, but he’s a good student. He handled it with class and came out and worked hard. He’s had a great attitude, and I know he’s itching to have a productive senior year." Upshaw should see plenty of touches as the second-banana behind Jalin Moore this fall (Marcus Cox graduated). The 5-foot-10, 210-pound Upshaw rushed for 575 yards as a redshirt freshman and 442 yards as a sophomore in 2015.
Jun 23 - 2:39 PM

Kansas State has granted transferring sophomore WR Corey Sutton a full release from his scholarship.

Wildcats HC Bill Snyder had initially barred Sutton from transferring to any of the 35 schools on his list, explaining that "a youngster is free to leave, but I'm not going to release the youngster." He also revealed that Sutton had twice tested positive in drug testing. All of this drew an understandably high level of scrutiny and the program has now relented to Sutton's request following the public backlash. Snyder also issued an apology, saying in a statement, "I would like to apologize to Corey and his family for my remarks last night which included sensitive and private information. I spoke out of line and for that I express a sincere regret for my comments."

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder said sophomore WR Corey Sutton twice failed drug tests before deciding to transfer.

"He’s ... been in trouble twice, tested positive twice," Snyder said. "Ya know, I’ve never kept a player in our program who’s tested positive two times… but we have some rules in the athletic department that allowed that to happen this time." This situation has devolved for the 77-year-old coach, who first denied Sutton's transfer to all 35 schools he requested (including DII teams) and then doubled down when Sutton took his case to the public. Sutton barely played last year, had no Big 12 teams or future K-State opponents among his 35 destinations and has gone through the appropriate transfer procedures. This incident won't permanently taint Snyder's legacy, as some have suggested, but he's getting flogged in the court of public opinion for egregious vindictiveness. It's time for Snyder to give this fight up and move on. An apology to Sutton for releasing private info before KSU is forced to reprimand its legendary coach would be a nice first step.
Jun 2 - 2:02 PM

Kansas State HC Bill Snyder defended his decision to block sophomore WR Corey Sutton from transferring to any of the 35 schools he is considering.

"I accept a youngster that comes into our program as making a similar commitment with a handshake and obviously a signed piece of paper," Snyder said in an interview with WHB-AM. "I’ve always said a youngster is free to leave, but I’m not going to release the youngster." Sutton indicated that he told Snyder, "Coaches can leave. So why can't a player leave?" The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder said that none of the 35 schools on his list are in the Big-12, nor are any of them upcoming Kansas State opponents. Unless Snyder budges on this, a transfer from Sutton would require a walk-on and put him out a scholarship for the next year.
