Austin Peay Governors Football’s linebacker corps appears to have depth

 

APSU Sports: Austin Peay Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Josh Carroll doesn’t look like the prototypical middle linebacker.

Instead of being 6-3 or 6-4 and weighing between 235 to 250 pounds, Carroll checks in at only 5-9, weighing 225 pounds. If ever a player fit the quote: “It is not the size of a man but the size of the heart that matters,” it is Carroll.

A backup to start the 2011 season, it didn’t take Carroll long to move into the starting lineup. He ended up finishing third on the team in tackles with 76, including 4.5 for loss.
