Written by Brad Kirtley
APSU Sports Information Director

Always a football talent, he gained playing time in 2010 as a reserve defensive tackle. He also was always easy to spot. Wearing jersey No. 99, Smith was the guy whose stomach protruded over his belt.

Govs hopes increased defensive line leads to improved play

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – The veins in his neck bulged. The anger in his voice was evident.

After watching his defense permit a 53-yard run to Wesley Kitts in Monday morning’s scrimmage, Austin Peay coach Rick Christophel still was an unhappy man nearly 45 minutes after the scrimmage concluded.

“One of the things that concerns me is we have to be able to stop the run,” he said. “There are going to be big plays in the passing game when we don’t have a pass rush, but we can’t allow them 20-or-more yard runs. That is not good.
