Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – When you graduate the program’s second all-time leading rusher, the answers are not always easy. But in Austin Peay’s case it may be as much about quantity as it is quality.

That that’s the situation facing the Governors in 2012, replacing two-time 1,000-yard rusher Ryan White.

White primed to rush up career charts in final Govs season

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – As practice started, Ryan White was down on one knee helping one of his young teammates stretch out his hamstrings.

A while later White was showing another fellow running back the footwork needed to run a drill. After a few minutes passed, he was helping new running backs coach J.D. Sellers set up cones to run a drill.

White is now in his fifth fall camp for Austin Peay. There is little left to learn for the Nashville native. Quietly he has developed into one of the program’s type all-time running backs-he was first-team All-Ohio Valley Conference in 2009 and was named preseason this year.
