App State’s Yosef Club on Pace for Record Total, Already Surpasses $2 Million Mark

Published Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 11:42 am

Appalachian State Athletics announced on Monday that the Yosef Club continues on a record pace to provide scholarship support for student-athletes. Efforts to date have resulted in a significant year-over-year increase, but additional gifts are critical to reach an all time high goal.

The annual scholarship bill for Appalachian State athletics currently stands at over $6 million dollars.  Benefactors and fans are encouraged to make their gift or commitment today in support of Appalachian State Athletics. All gifts to the Yosef Club count toward A Mountaineer Impact, A Drive For Excellence.

The Yosef Club, App State Athletics’ fundraising arm, supports Mountaineer student-athletes through scholarship, athletics facility enhancement and programmatic needs support. The life-changing educational and athletic opportunities provided to our over 450 student-athletes would not be possible without the generous support of our Yosef Club members.

YOSEF CLUB STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE MONTH – RONSHAD SHABAZZ (MBB) –  FULL ARTICLE

Appalachian State University men’s basketball sophomore guard Ronshad Shabazz has been named the inaugural Yosef Club Student-Athlete of the Month. The Raleigh, N.C. native, a criminal justice major, was selected as the Yosef Club’s choice to kick off the program based on his performance in the classroom and on the court.

Shabazz led the Mountaineers in scoring at 16.5 points per game. He was named third-team all-Sun Belt as announced by the league yesterday afternoon. Earlier this season, Shabazz scored a career-high 36 points on 13-for-24 shooting at Georgia Southern and notched his second career 30-point game in Boone against UTA.
