After a grueling first week of fall camp, capped by Saturday’s 128-play scrimmage, Appalachian State University football eased into its second full week of practice with two relatively light sessions on Monday at Kidd Brewer Stadium.



In a departure from its traditional schedule, the longer of Appalachian State’s two practices came in the morning. The Mountaineers wore helmets, shoulder pads and shorts for the two-hour workout, which was primarily dedicated to correcting mental mistakes from Saturday’s scrimmage as opposed to being a highly physical session.


In the afternoon, App State donned helmets and shorts for a 90-minute practice that focused primarily on special teams. The Mountaineers spent time on all aspects of the kicking game, including tight-punt and onside-kick situations.


Appalachian State is slated to return to full pads and contact on Tuesday when it holds just one practice at Kidd Brewer Stadium. The workout is closed to the general public but a full recap and video report will be available following its conclusion at
