College Football News Preview 2020: Top Appalachian State Mountaineers Players
Best Appalachian State Mountaineers Offensive Player
QB Zac Thomas, Sr.
It took a lot to replace the steady excellent of longtime starter Taylor Lamb, but but Thomas was able to do it with a good sophomore season followed up by a great junior campaign. The 6-1, 210-pounder threw for 28 touchdowns with six picks, and he ran for 436 yards and seven scores.
Efficient, dependable, and able to keep the chains moving, he might not always be perfect, but he gets the job done. Now he’s going into his third year as the starter.
2. WR Thomas Hennigan, Sr.
3. WR Corey Sutton, Sr.
4. C Noah Hannon, Sr.

Best Appalachian State Mountaineers Defensive Player
CB Shaun Jolly, Jr.
One of the Sun Belt’s most dangerous playmakers, the 5-9, 175-pounder came up with five picks – taking two for scores – with eight broken up passes. He’s not all that big, but he’s a sure tackler to go along with his tremendous quickness and ball-hawking skills. He’s a true No. 1 corner.

5. LB Trey Cobb. Jr.
