Two-time All Conference award winner Ben Carrion signed his letter of intent to play football for Appalachian State University Friday, March 18 at the Panther Pit.

“Playing for Franklin taught me how to be physically and mentally tough,” said Carrion.
The Second Team All Western North Carolina lineman plans on bringing that toughness as well as a hard-working no-nonsense attitude to the Appalachian State football program.
Carrion, who is just seventeen years old, will begin his tenure at Appalachian State this fall and hopes to attain a bachelors degree in Athletic Training.
