New Logos for Appalachian State Mountaineers

Written By:  •  Monday, December 2, 2013

The Appalachian State Mountaineers announced they were officially adopting a new set of logos starting yesterday via a press release on their athletics website.

Gone is the radically-modern-by-comparison “Yosef Head” logo employed by the team since the 1999 season, in its place an older version of Yosef – used last season for a single game as part of a throwback promotion. This logo will now be known as “Victory Yosef”.

“The excitement that Victory Yosef has generated among our students, alumni and fans since we introduced it as a throwback logo last fall has been overwhelming. Due to its popularity, it only made sense to make Victory Yosef a permanent part of our branding. We hope that it endures as a recognizable mark of Appalachian athletics for years to come.” – Appalachian State director of athletics Charlie Cobb

The white block “A” logo becomes the new primary, Yosef is an alternate. An additional block A logo, this one in black, is a second alternate.

Are you a fan of the change from modern to traditional by the Mountaineers… is the new Yosef logo a little too old-school for your tastes or is this a change the team had to make? Share your thoughts in the comments or add your rating to the new Yosef logo on the site here.
