BOONE — Appalachian State offensive tackle Victor Johnson and linebackers Jorden Fehr and Akeem Davis-Gaither were named to the Senior Bowl watch list, which was released Aug. 21.

Johnson is a four-year starter and was a key part of an offense that averaged 431.0 yards and 37.3 points per game in 2018. He is one of four starters returning from last season’s team that captured the Sun Belt Conference championship and a 45-13 win in the New Orleans Bowl.
