“I was excited at the physicality and our level of intensity we showed today in practice,” head coach Will Healy said.  “It was a great chance to see our young guys react to contact.”

The Govs will return to the field for their fourth practice of the season Tuesday at 3:45pm again wearing shells due to the NCAA acclamation period.

“I’m proud of the direction this team is headed, but we still have to keep improving on a daily basis to get to where we need to be by the time we take the field against Troy,” Healy added.

Saturday, August 13th APSU is slated to hold its first scrimmage at 7:30pm.
