App State QB Zac Thomas had to be helped off field after dirty hit

During the third quarter as Appalachian State poured it on against Middle Tennessee, quarterback Zac Thomas took a nasty, dirty hit and had to exit the game.

After he handed off to Cameron Peoples, Thomas was casually jogging the opposite direction when a Middle Tennessee defensive end came up and leveled him with a vicious shot.

Really, this is totally uncalled for and likely was the result of some frustration due to Middle Tennessee’s inability to stop Thomas and Co. from the second quarter on.
