On September 1, 2007, life changed for Armanti Edwards.
He admits today that the game probably opened some people’s eyes to what he can do on the football field. His performance in Appalachian State’s upset win over then-No. 5 Michigan in the Big House launched Edwards onto the national spotlight.
Three seasons later, Edwards graduated with two Division I FCS national championships in his freshman and sophomore seasons.
The diminutive quarterback was a dual threat under center and carved the Wolverines up for 227 yards passing, 62 yards rushing and four total touchdowns.
Edwards put the Mountaineers on the map, and finished his career with more than 10,000 passing yards, more than 4,000 rushing yards, 74 touchdowns and 33 interceptions.
He came back down to earth his junior and senior years though. He didn't top the 1,000 yard mark for rushing yards but his passing was more on display.
