Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN Barely half way through Austin Peay State University’s scrimmage came to a screeching halt, Saturday afternoon, at the Clarksville Academy Sports Complex.

One play into the second half, junior safety Brad Wilmer suffered a significant leg injury. After realizing the seriousness of the injury, APSU head coach Kirby Cannon called off the scrimmage remainder.

“Our feeling with something like that is we should not even try to resume,” Cannon said. “When you have a horrific injury like that, where there is pain and an injury that is going to end a young man’s season, it is hard to refocus the team. You put them at danger.

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.
