Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Filling areas of need, Austin Peay State University football team announced the signing of 16 student-athletes to National Letters of Intent, Wednesday, to attend the University next fall.

Wednesday was the first day that potential recruits could sign national letters of intent.
