Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) junior running back Kentel Williams has been suspended for the first two games of the football season for a violation of team rules, head coach Will Healy announced Friday, August 24th, 2018.
“We’re disappointed in the decisions Kentel has made that led to his suspension, but we hope he uses this situation as an opportunity to learn from his mistakes and grow as a person,” Healy said. “We have certain expectations that must be met to play football at Austin Peay, and there are consequences when those expectations are not met.
“I am confident once Kentel has served his suspension, his brothers on the team will welcome him back with open arms.”
The Governors open the season Saturday, September 1st at Georgia. They return home the following weekend to face Presbyterian on Saturday, September 8th. Williams is eligible to return for the Govs September 15th contest at Morehead State.
Williams started nine games in 2017 and finished second on the team with 674 yards rushing.
