The Armanti Edwards Update: Graduation Day


Hello Panther fans. It was a rough weekend for me personally. Before the Panthers lost on Sunday, on Saturday, I saw the tenure of the greatest player in Appalachian State history come to a close. Playing in sub-zero temps, hard winds, and heavy snow, the Mountaineers lost to Montana 24-17 when a last second pass from Armanti to Brian Quick was dropped in the end zone. Had the catch been made, pending the PAT, the game would have gone into Overtime. In fairness to Quick, the conditions were hardly ideal... but when greatness hits you right in the hands like that, you have to will yourself into making that catch.

Regardless of the harsh conditions, Armanti compiled 404 yards of total offense (353 passing, 54 rushing) and came just one drop shy of leading another brilliant comeback.




But now, Armanti is officially on the market... having graduated from App State in just 3.5 years of study...



Armanti graduated with honors by making the Dean's list, and joined just 2.8% of the student body in graduating in

under 4 years. Here are some of his final collegiate football statistics and achievments:

  • His 14,753 yards of total offense are 2nd only to the late Steve McNair in FCS history.
  • Currently holds the single game record for yards rushing by a Quarterback, set against Richmond in 2007, with 313 yards rushing.
  • He is the only player, at any level of college football, to pass for over 10,000 yards and rush for 4,000 in a career.
  • He holds more than 20 school records, most of which will never be touched, and he leaves ASU with a 42-7 record as a starter (11-2 in the playoffs), four Southern Conference titles and a pair of national championships.
  • He won the Walter Payton award in 2008 and 2009
  • Voted Souther Conference Offensive player of the year by both Coaches and Media, 2008, 2009
  • Led the first ever defeat of a top 5 AP poll FBS team (Michigan) by an FCS opponent, leading to the creation of the "Appalachian State Rule" in which FCS teams are now eligible for top 25 voting.

Only time will tell if we see him in a Panther uniform (please, please, please), but personally Armanti, thanks for making the last 4 years of college football some of the most exciting I will ever watch.
