Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University’s football team has added depth to its wide receiver corps with the most recent announced signings.

In fact, all three signees also will add size and speed to an area that lost a trio (Adrian Mines, T.C. Jennings and Darryl Miller) of experienced senior receivers. They are 6-3, 190-pound Hunter Branch, of Fairview; Anthony Woodard, a  6-5, 190-pound receiver from Gallatin, and Darryl Clack, a 6-6, 210-pound wideout from Maplewood.

The most recent signings now brings to 19 players the Governors have signed for 2011.

“We had them on our board and felt like we needed to add some quality depth at wide receiver,” APSU coach Rick Christophel said.  “Two of the three were in our summer camp—I think Hunter Branch was MVP. All three have good size and speed. They are very good athletes, multi-sport athletes.

“It gives us five receivers (Jamaar Embry and Tremond Robinson being the others) in this class. We will probably try to redshirt a couple if we can.”
