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
