As the Sun Belt's most recent football additions, Appalachian State and Georgia Southern have achieved instant success.

The Mountaineers and Eagles, both of whom defected to the league in 2014, have posted a combined record of 36-14 across the past two seasons and each have one bowl win on the ledger.  

Running and Fitness: A healthy lifestyle is just as important as exercise

By MOE JOHNSON
Running with Moe

Running, and exercise — in general terms — has been shown to have many health benefits, including physical, emotional, and mental health.

At the conclusion of spring drills, Ryan Melton earned the praise of head coach Everett Withers, one of the few Texas State players who could say as much.

Withers also commended quarterback Tyler Jones, safety Frankie Griffin, nose tackle Dallas McClarty and safety Stephan Johnson for having noteworthy spring camps.

Perhaps the voters for the Sun Belt's preseason teams, which includes select media members and every head football coach in the conference, were paying attention to Withers' words — at least where Melton was concerned.

College Baseball: Ex-Rattler Wyatt Ward stays close to home, decides to play baseball at Texas Lutheran

By ISHMAEL JOHNSON
Daily Record Sports

Wyatt Ward won’t be too far from home and that’s fine with him.

The ex-Rattler will play college baseball at Texas Lutheran University in Seguin. Ward batted .363, led the Rattlers in RBI (31) and hit the second most doubles on the team (nine) during a breakout senior year. Once he recovered from an early-season injury, Ward went from being a pure designated hitter to becoming San Marcos’ starting first baseman where he remained for the rest of the season.
