 *Darrynton Evans, Appalachian State, Player News


  Appalachian State's Darrynton Evans became an NFL running back on Friday night. Evans, a Mountaineers star who turned pro following his junior season, was selected during the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. Evans was the 93rd overall player taken. He is the highest draft pick for App State since Brian Quick was selected in the second round (33rd overall) of the 2012 draft. Evans will pair in the Titans backfield with Derrick Henry, the Titans' 6-foot-3 bruiser who ran for 1,540 yards last season. The New Smyrna Beach native was described by draft analysts as a change-of-pace back due to the 4.41 40-yard dash speed he displayed at the NFL Combine. - Winston-Salem Journal

  2020 NFL COMBINE INVITE: Darrynton Evans, RB, Appalachian State,...Evans amassed 2,884 career rushing yards (No. 9 all-time at App State) despite being the Mountaineers' primary running back for just 23 games. The two-time Sun Belt Championship Game MVP and MVP of the 2019 New Orleans Bowl finished both the 2018 and 2019 seasons as the Sun Belt's rushing champion with single-year totals of 1,187 and 1,480 rushing yards, respectively. A dangerous kickoff returner with three returns for touchdowns among his 34 career TDs, he had 4,642 all-purpose yards at App State. - Appalachian State Football

  Darrynton Evans, Appalachian State's star running back, has set his sights on the NFL. The redshirt junior announced on Wednesday that he will forgo his final collegiate season, declaring for the 2020 NFL Draft. Evans shared his decision on Twitter, doing so on the four-year anniversary of the day he announced his commitment to the Mountaineers. Evans is coming off one of the best seasons for a running back at App State, closing a career that started with big plays in big moments. In 2019, Evans tied a Sun Belt record with 24 total touchdowns to go along with 1,480 rushing yards, the fourth-highest total in program history. He was named the Sun Belt Conference offensive player of the year. He also won the Sun Belt championship game for the second straight season on Dec. 7, when Evans scored all three of his touchdowns in the first quarter of a 45-38 victory. - The Winston-Salem Journal

  Appalachian State running back Darrynton Evans turned a teammate's fourth-down fumble into a 31-yard touchdown. The Mountaineers added another fourth-down score when receiver Thomas Hennigan wrestled an under-thrown pass away from a UAB defensive back who tried to intercept it. Those kinds of plays lifted No. 20 Appalachian State to a 31-17 victory over the Blazers in the New Orleans Bowl on Saturday night. "We're not going to play scared at Appalachian State," newly promoted head coach Shawn Clark said. "We're going to play aggressive and let the cards fall where they fall." The Mountaineers (13-1) scored twice in the third quarter on quarterback fumbles. Evans, who rushed for a 157 yards, scored his lone touchdown when quarterback Zac Thomas lost the ball on a fourth-and-1 sneak. The ball rolled back toward Evans, who cleanly scooped it, made a sudden move to his right and sprinted into the open field. "It was just right place, right time," Evans said. Later, outside linebacker Nick Hampton stripped UAB quarterback Tyler Johnston, and inside linebacker Trey Cobb picked up the ball and returned it 24 yards to put Appalachian State in front 24-17. "There was more crazy things that happened in this game than 10 games combined," lamented UAB coach Bill Clark, calling the Appalachian State fumble that bounced straight back to Evans "pretty fluky." "Give their running back credit," the UAB coach added. "He made a heck of a play.” - AP College Football

  2019 ALL-SUN BELT FIRST TEAM (COACHES): Darrynton Evans, Appalachian State (Jr., RB, Oak Hill, Fla.),...The versatility of Evans also led to him being recognized in several areas. His 20 touchdowns are four more than the second-best total in the league, and he's second in the Sun Belt with 1,740 all-purpose yards, including 1,250 rushing yards. With a league-best 16 rushing touchdowns, three receiving touchdowns and one kickoff return for a touchdown, Evans has helped App State average a league-high 38.9 points per game. - Appalachian State Football

  Darrynton Evans scored three touchdowns and 20th-ranked Appalachian State repeated as Sun Belt Conference champions with a 45-38 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette on Saturday. Evans won the game's MVP for the second straight season. Zac Thomas threw for 149 yards and two touchdowns and Daetrich Harrington and Marcus Williams added touchdown runs. The Mountaineers racked up 416 yards on offense, including 267 on the ground in a dominating first half. When asked on the field what bowl he expects his team to play in, first-year Mountaineers coach Eli Drinkwitz shouted to fans, "It better be the Cotton Bowl!" The Mountaineers have now won at least a share of four straight Sun Belt championships. This was the second year there was a championship game.

Drinkwitz pulled a poker chip out of his pocket after the game and thanked his players, saying "we asked then to keep the chip all year long and be motivated to do something that has never been done before. And this group did it. Impressive." The Mountaineers (12-1, 8-1 Sun Belt) accomplished something North Carolina, Duke, North Carolina State and Wake Forest never have -- becoming the first FBS team from North Carolina to win 12 games in a season. Appalachian State defeated Lafayette 17-7 early this season on the road, but this one wasn't nearly as competitive. The Mountaineers entered the game averaging 38.9 points per game and showed their firepower in the first half by scoring touchdowns on their first five possessions -- the first three by Evans -- to build a 35-14 lead. - Appalachian State/AP College Football

  2019 SUN BELT OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Darrynton Evans, Appalachian State (Jr., RB, Oak Hill, Fla.),...Evans posted his second-straight 1,000-yard season on the ground in helping the Mountaineers to a historic season. He leads the Sun Belt and ranks sixth nationally in total touchdowns with 20 (16 rushing, three receiving and one kickoff return). Evans is the first player this millennium with 200+ rushing yards (239), three rushing touchdowns and a kickoff return for a touchdown in the same game (Charlotte on Sept. 7). He put up 150 or more all-purpose yards in five Appalachian State wins (Charlotte, Coastal Carolina, ULM, South Carolina and Texas State). - Sun Belt Football

  Darrynton Evans was recruited to Appalachian State as a slot receiver. He's carved out a pretty solid niche at tailback. Evans ran for 154 yards and three second-half touchdowns and No. 23 Appalachian State avoided another home upset with a big second half to beat Texas State 35-13 on a rain-soaked Saturday. The victory, combined with Arkansas State's 38-33 win over Georgia Southern, guarantees the Mountaineers (10-1, 6-1 Sun Belt) a spot in the Sun Belt Conference championship game on Dec. 7 for the second straight season. Evans has eclipsed 1,150 yards rushing in each of the past two seasons and needs 14 yards to break into the top 10 in school history in rushing.

Coach Eli Drinkwitz is glad the previous coaching staff made that move. "He's an elite tailback, obviously," Drinkwitz said. "To me, he's one of the most dynamic players in college football because of his speed and return ability, and we're very fortunate to have him. I've been blessed to be around some really good running backs. Five of them have been drafted, and he's right there with all of them, for sure." Evans said he isn't surprised by his success because he played running back in high school. "At times I had other people who could play running back, so I would move to slot," said Evans, who was moved to tailback in 2016 after the Mountaineers sustained some injuries at that position. Quarterback Zac Thomas threw for 174 yards and two touchdowns to help the Mountaineers improve to 30-6 at home since becoming an FBS team in 2014. - Appalachian State/AP College Football

  WEEK 2 SUN BELT OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Darrynton Evans, Appalachian State (Jr., RB, Oak Hill, Fla.),...Appalachian State junior running back Darrynton Evans' career-high 234 rushing yards (on 19 carries), 298 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns (three rushing, one kick return) propelled the Mountaineers to a 56-41 win over Charlotte. Evans' 234 rushing yards and 298 all-purpose yards were the most by an NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision player so far this year, while his rushing total was the fifth-highest in school history for a game with less than 20 carries.

His 87-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage was a career-long run, the fourth-longest in the nation this year and the fifth-longest in school history. Evans' other three scores each came immediately after second-half Charlotte touchdowns to keep Appalachian State at least a touchdown ahead each time. After two games, Evans tops the nation with 166.5 rushing yards per game. - Sun Belt Football
