The last three losses for Appalachian’s football team have been by a total of nine points.
The bounces are simply not falling the Mountaineers’ way. In their most recent defeat, a conference road loss to The Citadel, the offense drove 79 yards with only 1:19 remaining in the game to force overtime. App State received the ball first in the extra period, before starting quarterback Kameron Bryant’s pass was intercepted, leading to The Citadel’s 31-28 victory.
“It was kind of a wild, crazy play,” wide receiver Sean Price said. “I looked up, and I was trying to find the ball. Then I saw the big dude [Citadel lineman Mitchell Jeter] catch it. So it was just kind of a wild play.”
