Between freshmen and transfers, nearly half of those in uniform were new to Austin Peay and eager to get to work at the dawn of head coach Kirby Cannon‘s third season at the Austin Peay helm.

That group of newcomers will push a deep pool of returning contributors from a year ago as 16 starters and nearly 40 lettermen return.

Linemen worked on pad drills, quarterbacks and receivers worked on timing and the defense worked in one-on-one drills for the first part of practice, breaking off into 11-on-11 skeleton drills later in the session. On a humid morning that saw temperatures in the low-to-mid-80s, the Governors looked sharp defensively and promising on the other side of the ball.

The Governors continue practice this week with a 9:00am session every morning and light walk-through in the afternoon, all on the field at Governors Stadium.
