Open Letter from Director of Athletics Doug Gillin, Thank You App Nation

Dear App Nation,

As we continue to bask in the glow of the historic football season that we all enjoyed thanks to head coach Scott Satterfield, his staff and, most importantly, a very special group of student-athletes, I want to take a moment to thank YOU for your support, particularly last weekend at the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

Our student-athletes fed off of the energy you provided and it was undoubtedly a factor in our thrilling victory. Just as importantly, by buying tickets and traveling in droves to Montgomery, you proved to the nation (and bowl executives) what we already knew — Appalachian State fans are among the best in college football!

On behalf of our coaches and student-athletes, I thank you very much for your support in 2015. Even bigger things are on tap for 2016, particularly with regards to our home football schedule, which includes a visit from five-time national champion Miami on Sept. 17. Season ticket information will be available in early January.

In the meantime, Happy Holidays and Go Mountaineers!

Very sincerely,

Doug Gillin

Director of Athletics

Appalachian State University
