The Sun Belt Conference Friday officially welcomed four new members: James Madison, Marshall, Old Dominion and Southern Miss are now officially part of the Sun Belt's 14-member conference.

App State alum and current football staff member Lance Ware was recently inducted into the Cleveland County Sports Hall of Fame in his hometown of Shelby.

The team brought back wide receiver Keith Kirkwood, who has been with the team each of the last two seasons. The 27-year-old Kirkwood appeared in three games and caught three passes last season, spending most of the year on the practice squad. In 2020, he started the year on injured reserve, was activated for one game, but re-injured his shoulder and was out the rest of the season.

 Alan Cress, an App State alum who worked as an assistant coach for his alma mater during the 2021-22 season, has been named the head coach of App State's men's golf program.
