North Forsyth alum and current Appalachian State senior Colby Gossett was named to the Sun Belt Preseason All-Conference First Team on Friday. 

Gossett is set to begin his third season as a starter for the Mountaineers, who were picked to win the Sun Belt in the preseason poll. He helped Appalachian State rack up 250.9 rushing yards per game last year, which ranked ninth in the country, and allowed just one sack. He was named all-conference first team for those efforts. 

Gossett, who has mainly played right guard for the Mountaineers, was also been named to the watch list for the Outland Trophy, which is given to college football's best interior lineman. Appalachian State begins its season on Sept. 2 against Georgia in Athens.
