With senior quarterback Zac Thomas being projected as the conference MVP, App State has a league-leading 10 players on the two preseason All-Sun Belt teams from Lindy's.

The magazine deemed the Mountaineers the league favorite as they move forward from a record-breaking 13-1 season in 2019.

Thomas, receiver Corey Sutton, center Noah Hannon, offensive tackle Cooper Hodges, offensive guard Baer Hunter, defensive end Demetrius Taylor and cornerback Shaun Jolly made the magazine's preseason first team for the Sun Belt. Offensive guard Ryan Neuzil, receiver Thomas Hennigan and running back Marcus Williams Jr. are members of the publication's preseason second team.

Lindy's preseason superlatives list Thomas as the Sun Belt frontrunner under both "Strongest Arm" and "Coolest in Clutch." Hodges, who excelled at right tackle as a redshirt freshman in 2019, is recognized as the league's "Best Pass Blocker," while Sutton is among the league's top professional prospects heading into his senior year.

App State is scheduled to open the 2020 season on Sept. 5 against Morgan State.
