“I am extremely proud of student-athletes and academic support staff for another tremendous year in the classroom,” said APSU Director of Athletics Gerald Harrison. “Our student-athletes have embraced the ‘Total Gov’ concept and strive for excellence every day. I am so proud of what they have accomplished and can’t wait to see what they do in the future.”
