Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – After a pair of lively days in just shoulder pads, Austin Peay State University’s football team will be in full gear, 5:15pm, Friday in Governors Stadium.

The Govs, who were in shorts for practices Monday and Tuesday, upgraded to shoulder pads for Wednesday and Thursday’s practices. The intensity and enthusiasm levels also were raised in those practices.

“We’ve got a lot of young guys that need to get some work,” said Govs head coach Rick Christophel. “I want to see what kind of guys we signed, what they’re going to do and get them some time on the field. This is where we show them the intensity of the college game. We’ll get a little more physical once we get in full pads.”

The Govs will practice in full pads both Friday and Saturday before reverting to shorts on Sunday.

The Governors, who returned 46 lettermen from 2011, will scrimmage for the first time, 9:00am, Monday.
