Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Ron Shumate, the former Chattanooga and Southeast Missouri basketball coach, had a favorite saying about fans: “They are with you win or win.”

That certainly is not the case with this year’s newest Red Coat Society inductees, Hal Mathews and Terry Griffin. Through thick and thin, great and not-so-good seasons in APSU athletics, both became Austin Peay fans early in their respective lives and remain so as adults.

The Red Coat Society, now in its 12th year, serves as a Hall of Fame of service for the Governors Club, APSU’s Athletics booster club.

Mathews and Griffin will be honored at halftime of the Governors-Murray State men’s game, Saturday. A reception for them will be held at 3:30pm, Saturday prior to the Lady Govs-Racers contest.

After scratching basketball itch, Grant Leaver elevated golf game to Hall of Fame caliber at APSU

 

Written by Brad Kirtley
Austin Peay Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – As good as Grant Leaver was on the golf course, he had the undying desire to give basketball a shot. As a prep basketball standout, he and Matthew Dotson had formed a formidable one-two punch at Hickman County High School.

But Leaver was the cornerstone of then-new head coach Kirk Kayden’s golf team. He was named to the OVC All-Freshman team in Spring 2005 after sporting a 73.3 scoring average. He claimed his first medalist honor (F&M APSU Intercollegiate) in Fall 2005. The last thing Kayden could afford was for the 6-7 Leaver getting hurt.
