The Former Athletes Association was formed in 1975 and continues to this day to support student-athletes at Appalachian State.  The inaugural Letter Jacket Ceremony was held this past Spring along with a Senior Dinner, both of which were sponsored by the Former Athletes Association. In addition to these events, the Former Athletes Association also hosts the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony.  For a former Appalachian State student-athlete to qualify as a member of the Former Athletes Association, they must belong to the Yosef Club at the $100 membership level or above.
