ASU notebook: App State changes website address
by Staff Reports
Appalachian athletics' official online video outlet, formerly known as GoASU TV, will also rebrand as App State TV, beginning with a full report from the Superdome on Monday.
My App Fan, which allows fans to login to their Yosef Club, tickets and App State TV accounts, will be unaffected by the change. Existing subscriptions to GoASU TV will carry over to App State TV with no action necessary by subscribers.
Former Appalachian State basketball player Omar Carter was taken out of a medically induced coma Thursday after suffering a heart attack in a pro-am game in Charlotte Tuesday, according to published reports.
Carter, who played at Appalachian State from 2011 to 2013 after transferring from Charleston Southern, was still in the intensive care unit as of Thursday, according to the Charlotte Observer. Calls left to his agent, Jamie Knox, were not answered Saturday.
Carter was playing in a game in the Anthony Morrow Summer Hoops Pro-Am league at Charlotte's Grady Cole center on Tuesday when he collapsed. He had played a 30-game schedule in Limeira, Brazil, where he averaged 11.7 points per game during the winter.
He had just returned from a basketball camp in the Dominican Republic, according to the Observer.
SUN BELT BUSINESS
Appalachian State head football coach Scott Satterfield will meet members of the Sun Belt media during the Sun Belt Football Media Day in New Orleans on Monday.
It is one of the first official conference meetings for any member of the Appalachian State athletic office. Several App State athletic officials, including athletic director Charlie Cobb, attended league meetings in May.
Satterfield, who is vacationing over the weekend, will also meet with members of the Southern Conference at its media day on July 25.
