  The season still has a long way to go, but Saturday was a good start. Peoples was one of three running backs featured in the 35-20 victory against Charlotte. But from the moment he touched the ball, on the Mountaineers' third offensive series, his carries were electric. He scored his touchdown and had five carries on the drive - three that were 10 yards or longer. He was the first running back to break the order, his number called again for the next series. He'd get two carries and get dinged up, heading to the locker room. He returned for more action in the second half. "I guess I'm the hot hand," Peoples remembered before cracking a joke. "...I was like wow hold up now, I gotta catch my breath."

App State coach Shawn Clark said during his weekly press conference that Peoples would continue to be evaluated throughout the week. While Peoples spoke on Monday, an unexpected figure crashed his interview. Nic Cardwell, App State's offensive line coach, busted in to shout a few sentences. "He's thinking he's going to take it to the house," Cardwell shouted. "He's going all the way, as soon as he touches the rock, baby." And as Peoples reflected on his path from Lineville, Ala., to Boone, he hopes that will be the first of many more touchdowns. "I feel like I've always been kind of overlooked, and I feel like a lot of guys here can relate to that, which I think that's what makes this team so special," Peoples said. "It's that we all play with a chip on our shoulder. We all play like we got something to prove." - Winston-Salem Journal
