On precipice of becoming OVC’s wins leader, Gary McClure to be inducted into APSU Athletics Hall

 

APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – When Billy Merkel stepped down as Austin Peay State University baseball coach in Fall 1987, then-athletics director Bob Brooks had a decision to make: begin a search for a replacement, possibly interrupting fall practice and workouts, or name Gary McClure, the program’s graduate assistant, as interim coach.

It would be unfair to call Governors baseball an afterthought back then-APSU only had one Ohio Valley Conference title (1972) prior to that, but it certainly was not at the forefront of any APSU athletics discussions.

Long road back, Campbell cleared to resume basketball activities

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Anthony Campbell smiled. No, he beamed.

When it was mentioned how important Thursday night was, he couldn’t help but smile, partially out of relief. It had been eight months since Campbell tore both the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee during a December 8th practice, with surgery last December 28th. Thursday night was the so-called day of reckoning-it was the culmination of eight months of arduous-and sometimes painful-rehabilitation.

Thursday night was when Campbell was given “medical clearance to resume basketball activities” by team physician, Dr. Cooper Beazley, who performed the surgery back on December 28th. Back in May, Campbell was informed he had received a medical redshirt for the 2010-11 season and will be a junior athletically this season.
