Aug. 22, 2013. With football season right around the corner, the Appalachian IMG Sports Network announced enhancements to its weekly television and radio gridiron shows on Wednesday.
On the television front, the weekly show formerly known as Appalachian Football Weekly has been reborn as Always Attack: Inside Appalachian State Football. The format of the 30-minute show has also been revamped, as Always Attack: Inside Appalachian State Football will take viewers behind the scenes of Appalachian’s gridiron program through exclusive interviews and access to the meeting rooms and practice fields as the mountaineers prepare to take on a new opponent each week.
Always Attack: Inside Appalachian State Football debuts on Friday, Aug. 30, at 4:30 p.m. and will air every Friday at 4:30 p.m. throughout the season on SportSouth. It can also be seen weekly across the nation on Fox College Sports on a yet-to-be-determined day and time. Beginning on Friday evenings, premim subscribers can also watch the show on App State TV.
