BOONE — PFF College this week named App State sophomore cornerback Shaun Jolly a second-team All-American.
Jolly is tied for No. 6 nationally and No. 1 in the Sun Belt Conference with five interceptions this season.
By scoring touchdowns on a 24-yard interception return against Coastal Carolina and a 30-yard interception return against Georgia State, he is tied for No. 1 at the FBS level with two pick-sixes this year.
Jolly also has 35 tackles, seven pass breakups, 3.5 tackles for loss and one blocked punt.
Thomas is Sun Belt POW
Thomas was named the Sun Belt Conference offensive player of the week on Monday, and he was also one of eight quarterbacks named a "star of the week" by the Manning Award.
The Mountaineers junior set career highs for passing yards (326) and completions (28) while contributing to five touchdowns, including four through the air, in the win at Troy as App State improved to 21-3 with Thomas as starting QB.
It was the second weekly Sun Belt award this season for Thomas, who was also honored after he led the Mountaineers to a road win against Louisiana.
