ESPNU Series to Feature ASU Football on Wednesday PDF Print

Appalachian State University football will be featured in ESPNU’s All-Access series this week. All-Access: Appalachian State debuts on ESPNU on Wednesday (Oct. 27) at 6 p.m. and will be replayed on the ESPN family of networks throughout the week.

An ESPN production crew was on campus last Wednesday (Oct. 20) to film a behind-the-scenes look at a typical day for the Mountaineers as they prepared for the annual Battle for the Old Mountain Jug versus Western Carolina. The crew captured 12 hours of footage from activities ranging from coaches’ and players’ meetings and film study and practice to weightlifting and injury rehabilitation. The crew even followed quarterback DeAndre Presley to class to highlight the day-to-day demands placed on student-athletes both on and off the field.
ESPNU All-Access featured prominent programs such as Alabama, Florida State, Mississippi State and Oregon State for shows earlier this season. Appalachian is the first NCAA Division I FCS program to be included in the series.
The program may be somewhat reminiscent of Fox Sports’ Under The Lights documentary of the preparation for and aftermath of the Mountaineers’ historic win over Michigan in 2007. ASU head coach Jerry Moore won an Emmy award in 2008 for his role in the Under The Lights documentary (Outstanding Achievement, Sports — One-Time Special category).
