Austin Peay is scheduled to practice each Tuesday, Thursday and Friday throughout the week at 4:00pm, and on Saturday mornings at 10:00am. With the exception of the Saturday, February 11th practice all Saturday sessions will be control scrimmages.

Practices are open to the public, with all fans encouraged to come out and get an early look at the Govs.

The annual Governors spring game is currently set to take place on March 4th, with more details coming soon.

In 2016, APSU had an offensive turnaround in a new up-tempo scheme, highlighted by freshman quarterback Javaughn Craig and freshman tailback Kentel Williams posting impressive numbers to help the Govs have the most-improved offense in FCS football. Williams was named to the OVC All-Freshman team for his breakout campaign (541 rushing yards, six touchdowns, 97-yard kickoff return touchdown).

Kyran Moore, an OVC Second Team return man selection, also played a huge role last season, providing a spark in the return game – a 98-yard kickoff return touchdown – while also recording 508 combined yards on the offensive side of the ball.

Austin Peay’s defense also displayed improvements, led by the man in the middle, linebacker Gunnar Scholato. An OVC Second Team pick, Scholato posted 124 total tackles.
