Eighth-Annual Signing Day Reception Set for Feb. 3 at Appalachian Athletics Center

Appalachian State University football will hold its eighth-annual National Signing Day reception on Wednesday, Feb. 3 at the Appalachian Athletics Center. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The reception features head coach Scott Satterfield and his staff sharing highlights and information about the Mountaineers’ 2016 class of newcomers, which will sign National Letters of Intent to attend Appalachian State earlier in the day.

For the third-straight year, Appalachian’s crop of football newcomers is shaping up to be one of the best in the Sun Belt Conference. Several members of the last two signing classes have played an integral part in the Mountaineers winning 17 of their last 19 games, including their historic 11-2 campaign in 2015.

Admission to the National Signing Day reception, which includes heavy hors d’oeuvres and two drink tickets, costs just $30 for adults and $15 for youth (ages 3-12) but space is limited. To register, call the Appalachian State athletics ticket office at (828) 262-2079 beginning on Monday, Jan. 25 at 9 a.m. (the University is closed on Friday due to this weekend’s winter storm).

ESPN3 will air Appalachian State’s annual National Signing Day broadcast live from the Signing Day reception. Details on the ESPN3 broadcast will be finalized next week.
