Other than school and position, it's accurate

Apparently there’s a true dark horse candidate for Heisman. As in, we’re in the dark as to who this is. Wolfpack fans can not be happy. We guess ESPN just assumed the best college football player in North Carolina would be at App State.

ESPN is NEVER wrong

FOR THE RECORD: Here’s our “real” Russell Wilson, a four-year Mountaineer best known for his work as a long snapper.

    i think i remember a Russell Wilson (from Charlotte maybe?) from i believe all of our Championship seasons. I don't remember him being the Center though.
    I do know two things, if its the same guy I'm thinking about:
    – He has definitely graduated
    – He is a better athlete than the NC State Russell Wilson

    The voting on that contest allows for write-in votes. I know he won't win, but I think everyone here should vote for our guy. Let's show ESPN that AE is the best college QB we've ever seen play!

    Geoff, are you serious??????????????
    You honestly believe that Russel Wilson, the long-snapper/ center for Appalachian State is a better athlete than Russel Wilson (QB) from NC State. if you think that man you're nuts….I'm in no way a NCSU fan but dude, really? our long snapper is a better athlete…?? Would love to hear some back up on that one..

    eaaaasy. it was a joke. i thought it would be humorous to compare Appalachian's long-snapper to that over-rated quarterback that hangs out in Raleigh.
    he does, however, have more rings than "the other" Russell.
    Hopefully that clarifies things a bit…i would hate for anyone else's question mark key to get stuck.

    We could have used ol' Russell in that ECU game, I seem to remember a bad snap that lead to two points for ECU and which also lead to giving the Pirates back the ball with decent field position.

    Would be interesting to know what 13 people voted for Russell Wilson, center from ASU.

    It would be, it started off as just one vote earlier today. I'll I can think is that they are somehow putting AE's votes under that name…
