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.
