The AP is back on the Austin Peay helmet


apsuhelmetAustin Peay State University LogoThe AP is back, on the helmet, that is.

Austin Peay’s football team was surprised Saturday afternoon when they reported to the Dunn Center to play Eastern Kentucky. The players found the AP back on the helmet for the first time in three years.

“It all part of the process, all part of the plan,” said APSU coach Rick Christophel before the game. “Everything is going to be red and white. We got new uniforms this year with white pants. Our next thing will be going back to white facemasks.”

When Christophel took over as APSU’s head coach after the 2006 season, replacing Carroll McCray, who resigned, the AP was not placed on the helmets when APSU bought new helmets.

Christophel is an APSU alum having played quarterback from 1971-74.
