Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – On July 7th last summer, things were quiet here in the United States – just your typical Thursday afternoon. But overseas surrounding a diamond-shaped area in the streets of Geneva, Switzerland, it was a frenzy. It was the day France shocked the soccer world by advancing to the UEFA Euro 2016 final following a 2-0 upset over Germany.

Geneva borders France to the east side, and the locals celebrated the victory for hours, horns honking as each vehicle drove by the crowd of people. Among the gathering was an Austin Peay alum, standing in awe by the abnormality in front of him.

Instant Peay Play: APSU Football scrimmages have Govs showing promise with up-tempo style

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU Sports - Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – When Will Healy was hired as the new football coach at Austin Peay State University back in December he said he wanted to win and win sooner than later.

Now three weeks into his first spring practice at the helm, and two scrimmages in the books, it looks like the Governors are starting to get the up-tempo style of offense.

Running around 90-to-100 plays in both scrimmages the Govs playmakers have shown they can handle the quicker paced offensive style, putting up solid numbers – both in the running game, that isn’t a surprise – but also in the passing game that has been as best inconsistent the past several years.

Austin Peay football running backs are averaging 4.8 yards per rush through the first two scrimmages.

Instant Peay Play: New head coach for APSU Football Govs won’t be magic solution

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – A week ago Austin Peay State University announced that football head coach Kirby Cannon would be relieved of his duties as head coach after three seasons, and an overall win-loss record of 1-34, but that in of itself won’t fix a program that has suffered through 29 losing seasons over the past 31 years.

But with the exception of two or three spans in its 79-year football history Austin Peay has struggled to win on the gridiron, with only 18 winning seasons (three more that finished at .500) for the Governors and an overall record of 275-520-16 for a .349 winning percentage.
