Austin Peay Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Ron Shumate, the former Chattanooga and Southeast Missouri basketball coach, had a favorite saying about fans: “They are with you win or win.”

That certainly is not the case with this year’s newest Red Coat Society inductees, Hal Mathews and Terry Griffin. Through thick and thin, great and not-so-good seasons in APSU athletics, both became Austin Peay fans early in their respective lives and remain so as adults.

The Red Coat Society, now in its 12th year, serves as a Hall of Fame of service for the Governors Club, APSU’s Athletics booster club.

Mathews and Griffin will be honored at halftime of the Governors-Murray State men’s game, Saturday. A reception for them will be held at 3:30pm, Saturday prior to the Lady Govs-Racers contest.

Austin Peay State University’s Governor Peay has a challenger for APSU mascot

 

APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – And you thought election season was over.

Unchallenged for years as the official mascot for Austin Peay State University, Governor Peay X’s stranglehold on that role appears in serious jeopardy. A new candidate – known as ‘The Gov’ – has emerged to oppose the incumbent in a race to become the face of Austin Peay.

Austin Peay is rife with change at the moment. A new logo, refurbished football stadium and the addition of new President Dr. Alisa White have made the climate right for a challenger to a long-established figure. Though a newcomer to the mascot world, The Gov has picked an opportune moment to throw his hat into the ring to become Austin Peay’s next mascot.
