Buccaneers will open 2019 season at Appalachian State

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (June 25, 2019) – As ETSU anticipates the kickoff of the new campaign, ETSUBucs.com continues to count down the days by featuring the program’s 15 seniors on the site and via social media platforms throughout the summer months.

Today marks 67 days until the Bucs open the season at Appalachian State on Aug. 31 at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, N.C. Redshirt-senior offensive lineman No. 67 Myles Smith (Chattanooga, Tenn.) is the fifth player to be featured in the Senior Segment.

Smith enters his fifth and final season garnering the Blue & Gold uniform. The Tennessee native started a pair of contests in 2018 against Mars Hill (Sept. 1) and Tennessee (Sept. 8), aiding the Bucs in rushing for over 200 yards in the season-opening win over the Lions. During his career, Smith has played in 17 games with 13 starts. The redshirt-senior has laid claim to three SoCon Honor Rolls and was also named to the 2017 SoCon All-Academic Team for his hard work in the books.

Greene, Jr. Stadium for three consecutive home games at 7:30 p.m. against Shorter (Sept. 7), VMI (Sept. 14) and Austin Peay (Sept. 21). The six-game home schedule features four Southern Conference foes in VMI (Sept. 14), Wofford (Oct. 5), The Citadel (Nov. 2) and Mercer (Nov. 16).
